Overview

On the outside, twenty-eight-year-old Fiona Yu appears to be just another Hello Kitty—an educated, well-mannered Asian American woman. Secretly, she feels torn between the traditional Chinese values of her family and the social mores of being an American girl.

To escape the burden of carrying her family's honor, Fiona decides to take her own virginity. In the process, she makes a surprising discovery that reunites her with a long-lost friend, Sean Killroy. Sean introduces her to a dark world of excitement, danger, cunning, and cruelty, pushing her to the limits of her own morality. But Fiona's father throws her new life into disarray when he dupes her into an overnight trip that results in a hasty engagement to Don Koo, the spoiled son of a wealthy chef.

Determined to thwart her parents' plans to marry her off into Asian suburbia, Fiona seeks her freedom at any price. How far will she go to bury the Hello Kitty stereotype forever? Fiona's journey of self-discovery is biting and clever as she embraces her true nature and creates her own version of the American Dream, eliminating—without fear or remorse—anyone who stands in her way.

Angela S. Choi is a writer who lives in San Francisco, California. Born in Hong Kong, Angela practiced law until she took up writing. Hello Kitty Must Die is her debut novel.

"Look to the blatantly homicidal intent in the title, not the hot pink cover, to get a sense of this debut novel, which combines the violence and nihilism of a Chuck Palahniuk or Brett Easton Ellis novel with chick-lit label-dropping. The shock-value plot should provoke plenty of hype, but it’s Choi’s furious, laugh-out-loud social commentary that is most noteworthy."

This is NOT an actual Hello Kitty book, which is obvious from the description. I feel bad that there are so many negative reviews simply because people didn't take the time to look at what they were purchasing. This was a great read, darkly humorous and very entertaining. Reminded me of a flippant American Psycho - and I mean that in a good way.

It sucked me in from the first paragraph. Written from a unique point of view, I couldnt believe what I was rooting for. Reviewing this book while trying not to reveal any spoilers is so difficult. This gives a funny yet poinant look at life for young Chinese women and what they must go through with their families and culture. It also gives us a raw glimpse into a type of persons head that you should ever want to look into for fear of discovering that in some cases...you think just like they do. And I did. For this having been this authors first time being published, she did an excellent job. I will be looking for more books!

I read the ouline of the book and it didn't mention a thing about Hello Kitty. That means readers, don't think it has to do with the title, it probably doesn't.

Imagine the un-named narrator of Fight Club was not only seperate from Tyler Durden but was a female, Chinese-American lawyer being pressured to find a husband by her traditional parents. Did I mention the lawyer is missing her hymen, which totally ruins the fact she's saved her virginity for her family's honor until the age of 28? You might have some rage issues too!

If you love that ubiquitous little Japanese icon of kitsch . . . this book is NOT for you. If you are a fan of Chuck Palahniuk' s work, however, this might be for you. It is sort of a Asian Girl's Guide How Not To Date. To say any more would be to give too much away except that this is not an Amy Tan novel either.Angelina Choi takes us across may cultural taboos concerning dating and family honor and it is not too much of a stretch to say that this plot line could easily be adapted to any ethnicity, it just happens to be Chinese in this case.Very dark, but very humorous in a twisted sort of way that fans of the surreal will enjoy. Not your typical summer reading fare, but hard to put down. Four stars for me on this as it is just short of groundbreaking!
