With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing's speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants…
Wing Jones is the much anticipated debut novel from Katherine Webber, publishing 5th January 2017 in the UK. 



So today is my stop, Picture no. 17 - so we've met her brother and how that starts Wing Jones, through high school, trip to London in the summer then off to University, studying and falling in Love with Hong Kong and the rest of China, where Katherine met Kevin on this journey and then moved to Atlanta... the highlights of the tour so far and now hosting the next chapter in Katherine's journey...

 Ever since I’d graduated university, my two main goals had been to move back to Hong Kong and to somehow become a published author. So as much as I enjoyed living in Atlanta, when I had the opportunity to go back to Hong Kong with my job, I took it. It was amazing to be back in the city of my heart.
Gorgeous photo isn't - I admit I'd love to travel myself and so much of this has influenced Wing Jones then I can't wait to read it.
