Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.:
After a series of disastrous choices and rejections, seventeen-year-old Chinese American Iris Wang is thrust into the decadent world of Beijing high society as her cousin's English tutor.
In an attempt to snap her out of a funk, Iris Wang's parents send her to visit family in Beijing, with the hopes that Iris will 'reconnect with her culture' and 'find herself.' Iris expects to eat a few dumplings, meet some of her family, and visit a tourist hotspot or two. What she doesn't expect is to meet a handsome Mandarin-language tutor named Frank and to be swept up in the ridiculous, opulent world of Beijing's wealthy elite. Or making extraordinary discoveries about her family, her future, and herself. -- adapted from jacket.
