Johnny--not his Chinese name--comes to Lead Hill from Taichung, Taiwan. He is 16 and lives with Linda Turner. He likes music, especially MayDay, and he likes to exercise.
Johnny finds the way teenagers in the states think is very different. And he likes the freedom of choice in his classes. In Taiwan there are no choices. He is missing Homestyle cooking. When he returns to Taiwan he will have 3 more years of schooling before the university.
Johnny is hoping to understand why the USA is so important.
