A banded set of each volume of this gentle, manga romance

Matt, an ex-pat from Scotland in Hong Kong, meets Lee a local Chinese girl. They fall in love but her family is resistant to this foreigner. Matt eventually brings Lee back to study in Scotland and meet his family and friends. Can the pressures on both sides, and the cultural differences, be surmounted? They both find how difficult this can be.


"Drawn with the iconic faces and screentones manga aficionados cherish, and written with a sensitivity to the passion of first love, The Story of Lee is a story to move any heart." —Teacher Librarian "Recommended. The cultural tension is beautifully written, and the story is told well in the small moments between Lee and Matt." —Library Media Connection "There is much here to like. Lee is quite sympathetic and her straightforward romance with Matt is sweet and believable. Readers will look forward to the next volume in this gentle series." —VOYA "It's an old setup done effectively and believably." —Publishers Weekly
