"A darkly funny diatribe and celebration of self-discovery in a foreign land."

"This book hits every note-highs, lows, and snorty laughter through tears. Tina's search for self is one we all recognize in our own internal hunt, and Shanghai is the perfect setting for her to rise to the challenge while gnawing on a dumpling."
-Marni Freedman, cofounder of the San Diego Writers Festival and author of 7 Essential Writing Tools and Permission to Roar

"From the outside, Tina Martin's life looks perfect. But in reality, the young American wife, mother, and highly paid medical device salesperson feels dissatisfied and restless. Acting on advice from a fortune teller at a party, Tina persuades her husband to relocate the family to Shanghai, China. There, while living as an expat, Tina discovers not only a new culture but also her true self and life's purpose. This poignant, humorous, beautifully written book is not only Tina's story, it's every woman's story."
-Donna Brown Agins, author of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: Legendary First Lady and NAACP Nominee for Outstanding Literary Work for Maya Angelou: Diversity Makes for a Rich Tapestry

"Motherhood and family life can be a wild and crazy journey all on its own, but plop a workaholic American mom with her family in China? Now that is a must-read story, and that must-read story is Fish Heads and Duck Skin. Full of hilarity and heart, this book makes for a great escape. I highly recommend you add it to your cart now."
-Lisa Belcher, award-winning writer and director of Guest of Honor and Javelina Run, voted Female Filmmaker of the Year at the Austin Revolution Film Festival
