On the surface Ray Liu appears to be living a normal immigrant life: learning English, going to school, working in the family business. School is difficult for for Ray. Despite how much his father pushes him, Ray can’t keep up to his stepbrother who is the family favourite. When his father finds gay oriented websites in his browser history he kicks Ray out of the house. The few possessions that he takes are soon stolen. Not knowing what else to do Ray turns to prostitution. “In China boys who sell sex to men are called money boys, while those who offer services to women are called ducks.”

Well worth the read.
