In this brutally honest collection of often cringe-inducing episodes, David Yoo perfectly captures the cycle of failure and fear from childhood through adulthood. Whether he's wearing four layers of clothing to artificially beef up his slim frame, routinely testing highlighters against his forearm to see if he indeed has yellow skin, or preemptively sabotaging promising relationships to avoid being compared to former boyfriends, Yoo celebrates and skewers the insecurities of anxious people everywhere.
This is the first book-length study of religion in the early history of Korean immigrants and their descendants in the United States. Yoo (history, Claremont McKenna College) focuses on the Protestant experience in the greater Honolulu and Los Angeles areas for the period 1903 to 1945. He builds his analysis on the themes of religion and the racialization of Koreans in the US, the impact of religion on networks of migration and exile, and issues of colonialism and independence in Korea and the US.

Detention The best worst thing to happen to Peter Lee? Peter and his best friend, Drew, used to be so cool (or, at least, not total outcasts) in elementary school. But now they're in middle school, where their extensive mica collection and prowess at kickball have earned them a new label: losers. Then Peter attracts the unwanted attention of the school bullies, and his plan to become popular through his older sister, the practically perfect Sunny, backfires. Things go from bad to worse when Peter gets detention. But what at first seems to spell his utter doom turns into an unlikely opportunity for making friends and influencing people. . . .
