"This deeply personal journey has been nearly three years in the making," says Liu about his new book.
From stories of being raised in China by his grandparents to moving to Canada, the book explores the struggles he faced of unexpectedly moving to a foreign country with his parents.

The book also explores Simu's battles with parental expectations, cultural stereotypes, and finding a path for himself.
"... it's a story about growing up between cultures, finding your family, and becoming the master of your own extra-ordinary circumstances," says Liu about his book.
Liu might be known for his breakout role in Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and his role in Kim's Convenience, but he didn't pursue acting until later in life. Liu had a job as an accountant before becoming an actor.
Liu has also done some modelling for stock photography companies in order to make some cash in between looking for acting jobs.
