Hello Kitty Must Die by Angela Choi
This is definitely one of those books that I judged by it's cover!!! I mean how can you not..?? I am very fond of Hello Kitty & I needed to know why she must die...haha!! In this book Hello Kitty refers to the stereotype of Asian woman and why that type of person needs to go away.
This book follows Fi - a corporate lawyer who refuses to wear lipstick, who actually enjoys the pain of stilettos, & who took her own virginity with a silicone dildo drenched in lidocaine (numbing agent). YES!! Fi definitely thinks outside of the box. She tries her best to juggle the Chinese & American world, while not truly believing in most the Chinese tradition. Fi's parents are very concerned about her lack of a husband and child and repeatedly set her up on AWFUL dates - one guy didn't want to pay for her food, another took her crabbing with 3 of his friends..oh and the second guy also told her to watch him lift weights. WHAT?? WHY..??
After she takes her own virginity she decided to find a doctor to restore her hymen...you know just in case. The doctor (Sean) turns out to be an old Catholic school friend who thinks even more radically than Fi!!
Fi & Sean quickly catch up and renew their friendship again, but with a darker twist. Sean likes to make 'things happen' when people cross the line with Fi or just for the hell of it. After all this is the same guy that lit a girl's hair on fire in grammer school!!
Go find out why Hello Kitty must die!! I really enjoyed this book, it gave me a look into another cultural and another time of beliefs. I can honestly say this book made me laugh out loud & shake my head at the same time. This book is a perfect blend of chick lit & disturbia.
