This film is about a man named Bryan, played by Tyler Perry himself, who's daughter is very mischievous. She does not obey her father at all because she feels like he is a push over, and she feels like since he is a push over he should not tell her what to do.

The Aunties are uneasy by Jing-mei's statement “‘Not know your own mother?’ cries Auntie An-mei with disbelief. ‘How can you say? Your mother is in your bones!’” (Tan 16).

Jing-mei and her father travel to her mother’s homeland to comprehend what her mother endured “She must not only hear her mother's words, and later, her father's, but also she must see the landscape that those words, or mini poems, interpret in order for her to discover her own individual place” (Wood 13).
The kitchen is a transformation of her obligations that her parents have set for her to mentally have. Her parents believe that a woman’s place in the world is the kitchen and to serve her husband who is the financial provider of the family. The problem with the closet’s transformation effect on the young girl is that she is completely taken away from who she really is as a person because the young girl is forced to dress up as a boy to get the attention she desperately wants from her father. The negative effect of the kitchen’s transformation, is that the kitchen forces the young girl to believe that she is worth nothing in this world and that her rest of her life will be spent serving her husband through the kitchen.

A lot of profanity is used in this book so it’s not appropriate for all ages. But, it is a good book for teens. Some character developments are upsetting too because some characters go back and forth between their old self and their new self and they just end up in a bad position. It’s very upsetting to see this when you as a reader are expecting the character's to learn a lesson after so many tragic events. The last drawback to this book is the inappropriate scenes that you need to have a high level of maturity to understand.
