About Off the Menu

Off the Menu is being called an extraordinary debut about second-generation Asian-American women trying to live up to society’s high standards, as well as their own.  

Even though it’s been ten years since their Houston high school days, co-valedictorians and best friends Whitney Lee, Hercules Huang, and Audrey Henley still delight in their once-a-month get-togethers where they talk, laugh, and confide in each other— although not about everything. Because each young woman has a deep, dark secret they think they could never share. Not even with their best friends. Then, during a girls’ weekend getaway, these three friends wind up revealing their most intimate truths—and realize that to get straight As in the real world, all you have to do is let go of the need to be perfect…

    I don’t want to be greedy, but if you are looking for blog tour hosts…… I’ve heard this book is very good!

  2. I would love to host this book! :)

  3. Florinda says:

    If you’re looking for tour hosts, I would be interested – and it would be my first one :-)!

  4. Michele says:

    I have already added this to my tbr list last month so I’d love to host if you need any!

  5. wordlily says:

    Sounds like a great read! Do you already have the hosts picked?

  6. Marcia says:

    Looks like you’re full already ~ darn. I’ve had this one on my Amazon wishlist for a while now. Maybe next time. :-)

  7. If you have any open spots, I already have this book and could do a tour date.

  8. Shana @ Literarily says:

    Lisa, did you get my email about this book?

    Christine — I loved your essay about how finding perfect jeans during a spontaneous venture into Abercrombie & Fitch (you described the place *exactly* as I’ve experienced it, too!) was much like the process of getting a book published. I can’t imagine how you find the time to write with your high-powered legal work, but hey, perhaps the secret is something I can learn from reading a free copy of your book! I edit others’ writing for a living — there’s got to be a better way to be involved in publishing!

  10. […] schedule once again here on the island.  I am hosting Christine Son and her book Off The Menu for TLC Book Tours on Monday, followed by a list of things to do this week in preparation for Thanksgiving.  Be sure […]
