By Gloria Chao

An incisive, laugh-out-loud modern debut a couple of Taiwanese-American teenager whose mom and dad wish her to be a physician and marry a Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer regardless of her germophobia and overwhelm on a eastern classmate.

At seventeen, Mei might be in highschool, yet skipping fourth grade was once a part of her mom and dad’ grasp plan. Now a freshman at MIT, she is on target to meet the remainder of this predetermined destiny: turn into a physician, marry a preapproved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer, produce a clutter of babies.

With every thing her mom and dad have sacrificed to make her soft lifestyles a fact, Mei can’t convey herself to inform them the truth—that she (1) hates germs, (2) falls asleep in biology lectures, and (3) has a weigh down on her classmate Darren Takahashi, who's decidedly not Taiwanese.

But while Mei reconnects together with her brother, Xing, who's estranged from the relations for courting the incorrect lady, Mei begins to wonder whether all of the secrets and techniques are actually worthy it. Can she be able to be herself, whoever that's, earlier than her net of lies unravels?

From debut writer Gloria Chao comes a hilarious, heartfelt story of ways not like the panda, existence isn’t constantly so black and white.
