Mooncakes, by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu is a magical graphic novel that will cast a spell over your heart. This self-contained story follows a diverse cast of characters and pulls the reader right into the magical setting.

The Netflix original movie, The Half of It directed and written by Alice Wu (director and writer of Saving Face), is an interesting take on a high school romance drama.
