Overview

What happens when thirteen tourists from all over the world head out together on a monthlong tour of China?

Twisting and turning through the Chinese landscape with Lisa's eating disorder, Ben and Habiba's interesting relationship, and Maria and Enrique's honeymoon troubles, Sweet and Sour July is a sparkling, dialogue-filled comedy packed with fascinating characters and the mystique and madness of foreign travel.

After dealing with a range of momentous life changes, the thirteen guests all set out on the tour to celebrate, recover, or just have a good time. But as the weeks go by, the Chinese tour becomes more than just a vacation-it becomes a true journey toward resolving long-standing issues and creating new life paths.

From figuring out foreign toilets to trying to agree on an afternoon meal, each traveler on the humorous journey comes alive with a unique personality and tales of vanity, marriage, eating disorders, war, religion, and sex. And just when the tourists think it can't get any crazier, they learn that they may have even more in common than they thought .

    Really fun page turner. I read this book shortly after visiting China and I want to recommend it to anyone who is planning a trip to China as well as to those who have already been. The story is funny and realistic. In fact, the tour guide in the book reminds me of a guide I went on a tour with from Beijing to the Great Wall. I'm hoping for a sequel. Maybe some of the quirky characters from Sweet and Sour July will get together somewhere else in the world?
