Loveboat, Taipei (Paperback)Abigail Hing Wen (author)
A diverse group of students embrace the thrills and complications of all-night partying and plentiful hook-ups during a memorable summer in this addictive romantic comedy perfect for fans of Jenny Han.
Perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen, this romantic and layered Own Voices debut from Abigail Hing Wen is a dazzling, fun-filled romp.
'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, 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!
