"Amy is good at many other things, Zhang assures readers, and bao making can’t be too far beyond her grasp — especially since her parents and grandmother are happy to dedicate a day to helping. But perfection continues to elude the increasingly frazzled child, until she figures out how to hack the process by using smaller dough circles ('Amy-size'), which yield flawless bao that 'are soft and fluffy and so, so delicious'.... A bao recipe concludes, as does a revelation that 'not-so-perfect bao' taste just as a good as their tidy counterparts." — Publishers Weekly
