China Boy by Gus Lee follows a young boy in SF in the 1950s struggling to find his Chinese-American identity. Feeling displaced from his mother, father, and surrounding peers, the main character must tear off his former identity to fit into this society. 

The book cover simulates the feeling of stripping an identity. Something that the reader can only do once before reading the book.
