Praised as “an intense rush of rebellion and romance” by #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Garber, this romantic and layered debut from Abigail Hing Wen is “a roller-coaster ride of romance and self-discovery.” (Kirkus)

“Our cousins have done this program,” Sophie whispers. “Best kept secret. Zero supervision.

And just like that, Ever Wong’s summer takes an unexpected turn. Gone is Chien Tan, the strict educational program in Taiwan that Ever was expecting. In its place, she finds Loveboat: a summer-long free-for-all where hookups abound, adults turn a blind eye, snake-blood sake flows abundantly, and the nightlife runs nonstop.

But not every student is quite what they seem:

Ever is working toward becoming a doctor but nurses a secret passion for dance.

Rick Woo is the Yale-bound child prodigy bane of Ever’s existence whose perfection hides a secret.

Boy-crazy, fashion-obsessed Sophie Ha turns out to have more to her than meets the eye.

And under sexy Xavier Yeh’s shell is buried a shameful truth he’ll never admit.

When these students’ lives collide, it’s guaranteed to be a summer Ever will never forget.

“A unique story from an exciting and authentic new voice.” —Sabaa Tahir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of An Ember in the Ashes

“Equal parts surprising, original, and intelligent. An intense rush of rebellion and romance.” —Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

“Fresh as a first kiss.” —Stacey Lee, award-winning author of Outrun the Moon

"Fresh, fun, heartfelt, and totally addictive, a story about finding your place—and your people—where you least expected." —Kelly Loy Gilbert, author of the William C. Morris Award finalist Conviction

Slightly Smiling Face“I loved it! This book was about knowing who you are, but figuring out how to incorporate that with how others see you. It’s the classic Asian American kid vs Asian American parent struggle. And ultimately, the book is about just doing what makes you happy.”

Slightly Smiling Face“Overall, this was a good read. I love that we get to see Ever’s growth through her inner dialogue. I appreciate that she was 18 years old and experiencing life! I relate to her taking a break from the pressures of home. One thing: they didn’t touch too much on Sophie’s reaction / healing after being with the ‘abusive’ Matteo. Maybe theres more in the second book? But all in all, I loved how it all turned out for Ever👌🏽👌🏽”
Characters change and growAddictive
“I won’t say this was a particularly groundbreaking romance, and I would not want to be friends with any of these characters with their questionable dating ethics, but boy did I enjoy reading about their antics and all the Chinese references <3”
