When I read American Born Chinese, Andi recommended Boxers and Saints. I've yet to pick up Saints but I read Boxers and really enjoyed it. It is the story of the Boxer Rebellion (strangely, something I learned a little about this semester in my archives class) from the point of view of one of the rebel leaders. You certainly empathize with Bao. I loved the anime-nod that the rebels become the incarnation of gods when they battle. So so sad as well. a 6.
