A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novel-now a major motion picture! "This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun." -Entertainment Weekly When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country's most eligible bachelor. On Nick's arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

"In this romp of a novel, narrator Lynn Chen goes to great lengths to convey the Asian-centric nature of the story in heavy Asian-accented English. The saving grace may be that the pretentious Europeans are also rendered with laughable characterizations. The satire of the novel is at the heart of the story and part of the fun. Chen's reading has the diverse qualities of a one-woman show. She varies her pitch for male and female characters and presents the modal tones of Cantonese perfectly. The plot includes a broad cast of characters, which Chen makes distinctive and, thereby, easier to remember. M.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
