This means swapping her congee lunch for PB&Js ignoring the clueless racism from her classmates and teachers and keeping her mouth shut when people wrongly call her Allie instead of her actual name pronounced Ā:hlě:e after the mountain in Taiwan. Her autopilot existence is disrupted when she finds out that Chase Yu the new kid in school is also Taiwanese. Despite some initial resistance due to the &ldquo:they belong together&rdquo: whispers Ali and Chase soon spark a chemistry rooted in competitive martial arts joking in two languages and most importantly pushing back against the discrimination they face. But when Ali&rsquo:s mom finds out about the relationship she forces Ali to end it. As Ali covertly digs into the why behind her mother&rsquo:s disapproval she uncovers secrets about her family and Chase that force her to question everything she thought she knew about life love and her unknowable future. Snippets of a love story from 19thcentury China (a retelling of the Chinese folktale The Butterfly Lovers) are interspersed with Ali&rsquo:s narrative and intertwined with her fate.A teen outcast is swept up in a whirlwind romance and dark family secrets when another Taiwanese family moves to her small predominantly white Midwestern town.Gloria Chao is the critically acclaimed author of :American Panda :Our Wayward Fate and :Rent a Boyfriend.
