This series chronicles the lives of pop culture icons with connections to the Chinese-speaking world. Learning about world-renowned personalities from fields such as sports, music, and fashion helps engage student interest, while reading practice will boost their confidence and enjoyment of the language. To enable beginning-to intermediate level students to read along without the aid of a dictionary for pronunciation, the simplified Chinese characters are accompanied by pinyin annotation. Unlike other readers at this level, the pinyin is separated by word rather than syllable, giving students a better understanding of how Chinese characters come together to from words and sentences.

Vera Wang fell in love with the fashion world at an early age and rose through its ranks to become a designer to the stars. Readers will learn how this contemporary cultural icon overcame the challenges on her path to fame and developed her inspiring strength of character. Pinyin annotation is separated by word rather than syllable. Pre- and post-reading comprehension questions. For high school and college students with mastery of 350-700 characters.
