Product description

Review

"An entertaining and heartfelt debut that takes readers on a roller-coaster ride of romance and self-discovery." --Kirkus Reviews

"There's a sweetness to Ever's rumspringa, and the hothouse atmosphere of Chien Tan, with its intense relationships and clever balance between respectability for parents and opportunistic freedom for their offspring, is deftly conveyed." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Ever's summer [turns] into one of love, mischief, and self-awakening that she will soon not forget... [but] It's Ever's resulting growth in the face of parental expectations and heartache that will resonate most with readers far and wide."--Booklist

"From tea eggs to snake blood sake, the energy of Taipei in the summer provides a winning backdrop to this joyful debut about a young American dancer who finds love and freedom by exploring her Taiwanese roots."--Publishers Weekly

"Refreshing and exciting...YA readers will love the mix of romance, defiance, adventure, culture, and friendship."--School Library Journal

"Equal parts surprising, original, and intelligent, Loveboat, Taipei is an intense rush of rebellion, romance, and complex family dynamics. If you've ever wanted to feel as if you're breaking all the rules without actually breaking any rules then this is the book you need to read."--Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of CARAVAL

"[Loveboat, Taipei] is a wonderful read and I find the book has just stayed with me. It has so much to say about being the child of immigrants, about gender and sexuality, about identity and what makes a home. Ever's search to define herself, with all her intersecting identities, in a world that wants to define her is really beautifully wrought and lovely."--Anne Ursu, author of the National Book Award long listed novel The Lost Boy

"Loveboat is a Crazy Rich Asians meets a Jane Austen comedy of manners--fresh, fun, heartfelt and totally addictive, a story about finding your place--and your people--where you least expected."--Kelly Loy Gilbert, Morris Award Finalist author of Conviction

"Abigail Hing Wen's LOVEBOAT, TAIPEI is a poignant and honest examination of first love, family obligations and that strange place between high school and college, where we don't quite know who we are and as such, anything could happen. A unique story from an exciting and authentic new voice."--Sabaa Tahir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of AN EMBER IN THE ASHES

"Not a ship, but a cultural phenomenon, get ready to board the Love Boat, where millions of Chinese Americans get their first taste of love and freedom. Abigail Hing Wen's debut is fresh as a first kiss."--Stacey Lee, award winning author of OUTRUN THE MOON
