‘Chopstix’ is the story of Wendy Wu, college girl turned superhero. Wielding a pair of chopsticks as her weapon, she plans on taking down her city’s criminals in style. What she wasn’t planning on, though, was discovering part of her she didn’t realise existed.

What did you think of the cover?
I found the cover summed up the storyline well, but could have been portrayed more similarly to YA fiction.

Wendy’s characteristics made her unexpected, but I found that she fit into the role of a super-hero really well!
What did you think of the Chinese culture woven throughout?
I loved it, I felt that I learnt things, without feeling like I was having to learn tedious facts.
