Compelling, inspiring, and insightful, Gigi’s story is like that of so many immigrants who have been embraced by the cultural diversity and economic opportunities of Houston. In a unique fusion of the 2008 world of real estate and the struggles Gigi faces as a young Chinese woman, Jenny weaves a tale that not only keeps her readers engaged with its colourful characters and fast paced story line; it moves them to be bold and confident in the face of adversity.

Not only must you learn the language, but multi-faceted aspects of the real-estate business! If you learn to swim, the world is your oyster! Gigi O manages not only to survive but thrive and show once again that your fame, your fortune are the outcome of your inventive personality! Gigi O is a thriver! I stayed engaged in the plot and journey of this inventive, intelligent, fun woman who has given platform shoes a whole new image, if not meaning! I recommend this book and congratulate the author, Jenny Wang!

Jenny Wang blends traditionally taboo topics with familiar elements of the Asian immigrant experience and in the process, shatters stereotypes in her debut novel. The author draws upon her own knowledge in real estate to add a layer of real-life grit in this fun and uplifting novel. In the process, we learn there is no singular definition of success, and as women, we should never apologize for making it on our own.
