The author seems well qualified to write the book: she is fluent in Chinese and English, has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and she emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager, just as the main character in the story does.

Focus on the parallelism:
she is fluent, has reported from Beijing ...

1 and she emigrated
2 and, like the main character in the story, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager.
3 and she emigrated
4 and, she, like the main character in the story does, emigrated
5 and, she, like the main character in the story, emigrated

There are three actions that the subject does. All those have to be parallel.
In a parallel structure of this kind there is no need to repet the subject: since all actions are parallel the subject is the same.

1 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and she emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager, just as the main character in the story does. - This option changes the intended meaning of the sentence. This option conveys that the both the author & character migrated when they were teenager rather than both just migrated.

2 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and, like the main character in the story, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager. - CORRECT

3 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and she emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager, just like the main character in the story does - LIKE must be followed by a Phrase & not by a clause.

4 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and, she, like the main character in the story does, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager. - LIKE must be followed by a Phrase & not by a clause. Moreover this option introduces modifier error

5 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and, she, like the main character in the story, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager. - Changes the intended meaning of the sentence. This option means that the Author is similar to the main character of the story

Hope this helps.

The author seems well qualified to write the book: she is fluent in Chinese and English, has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and she emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager, just as the main character in the story does.

1 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and she emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager, just as the main character in the story does.
there should be a "comma" after the and, as the list contains more than two items
2 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and, like the main character in the story, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager.
Correct
3 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and she emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager, just like the main character in the story does.
there should be a "comma" after the and, as the list contains more than two items
4 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and, she, like the main character in the story does, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager.
like compares nouns, hence like the main character in the story does is wrong as it is comparing action, as should be used instead
5 has reported from Beijing – where most of the story takes place – and, she, like the main character in the story, emigrated to the New York area when she was a teenager.
and, she, like the main character in the story - the subject is not required again as it breaks the parallelism

Hope it helps!
