Confusion, competition, jealousy, rivalry, and finding oneself: all the ingredients for a coming-of-age story. In addition to the usual adolescent hurdles one faces, our lead character Yang Yang is faced with a new stepfather who doubles as her track coach, a new stepsister who’s also her track rival, and a biological father she knows nothing about, but who’s DNA is partially responsible for a mixed heritage.
