About the book

Ed Lin’s fictional main character, David Tung, is a Chinese American high school sophomore in an upscale, highly competitive, Asian-majority, New Jersey suburb who works at his family’s restaurant and strategizes in homeroom to improve his class rank so he can get into an Ivy League college. His only release? Hanging with his “real” friends once a week at Chinese school in NYC’s working-class Chinatown. When a girl at school asks David to go to a dance, he has problems coping with his parents' no-dating policy. Can he manage to sneak out to the dance while keeping his grades up and working at the restaurant? Of course not, and his world is turned upside down.
