If Minh’s parents didn’t so detest swearing, the back of her wheelchair would sport a bumper sticker that read Bitch on Wheels. The only Asian in a kaleidoscope of multi-racial siblings adopted into the Jones family, Minh has been Cathryn’s pillar of strength since the day they met in kindergarten, and she has no qualms with hurting Gus’s feelings to protect her friend.
While Cathryn relishes 10,000 words, Minh prefers one picture. Whether inked onto the human body, sprayed onto the side of a building, or perched within a gilded frame, Minh is a fan of all things art.
Arguing with her is like trying to chisel stone with a piece of cooked spaghetti. Right or wrong, she never breaks. Pity is an intolerable offense she corrects with one crack of her whip-like tongue. She never cries, never surrenders, and never turns her back on a friend.
