Acclaimed author Gloria Chao creates real-world magic in this luminous romance about teens who devote themselves to granting other people’s wishes, but are too afraid to let themselves have their own hearts’ desires—each other.

Liya and Kai had been best friends since they were little kids, but all that changed when a humiliating incident sparked The Biggest Misunderstanding Of All Time—and they haven’t spoken since.

Then Liya discovers her family’s wishing lantern store is struggling, and she decides to resume a tradition she had with her beloved late grandmother: secretly fulfilling the wishes people write on the lanterns they send into the sky. It may boost sales and save the store, but she can’t do it alone . . . and Kai is the only one who cares enough to help.

While working on their covert missions, Liya and Kai rekindle their friendship—and maybe more. But when their feuding families and their changing futures threaten to tear them apart again, can they find a way to make their own wishes come true?

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets The Farewell in this incisive romantic comedy about a college student who hires a fake boyfriend to appease her traditional Taiwanese parents, to disastrous results, from the acclaimed author of American Panda.

Chloe Wang is nervous to introduce her parents to her boyfriend, because the truth is, she hasn’t met him yet either. She hired him from Rent for Your ’Rents, a company specializing in providing fake boyfriends trained to impress even the most traditional Asian parents.

Drew Chan’s passion is art, but after his parents cut him off for dropping out of college to pursue his dreams, he became a Rent for Your ’Rents employee to keep a roof over his head. Luckily, learning protocols like “Type C parents prefer quiet, kind, zero-PDA gestures” comes naturally to him.

When Chloe rents Drew, the mission is simple: convince her parents fake Drew is worthy of their approval so they’ll stop pressuring her to accept a proposal from Hongbo, the wealthiest (and slimiest) young bachelor in their tight-knit Asian American community.

But when Chloe starts to fall for the real Drew—who, unlike his fake persona, is definitely not ’rent-worthy—her carefully curated life begins to unravel. Can she figure out what she wants before she loses everything?

“Fun and flirty. A natural with romantic comedy, Chao keeps the reader engaged.”South China Morning Post

“Gloria Chao has done it again! Nobody writes family, first love, and finding your voice quite like she does. Rent a Boyfriend is laugh-out-loud funny, achingly honest, and unbelievably swoony. You’ll cheer for Chloe every step of the way. Just like Drew’s paintings, Gloria Chao has created a masterpiece.”
—Stephanie Kate Strohm, author of Love a la Mode and It’s Not Me, It’s You

“I’m obsessed with this book. Gloria Chao writes with a deft combination of humor and empathy, her characters so bright and aching and full of longing. Rent a Boyfriend is exactly the kind of romantic romp promised by the title, but it’s also an emotional gut-punch, a careful excavation of family secrets, and a reminder to anyone who’s ever felt alone that they are absolutely worthy of love.”
—Rachel Lynn Solomon, award-winning author of Today, Tonight, Tomorrow, and Our Year of Maybe

“I adored this book! In Rent a Boyfriend, Gloria Chao pivots stunningly from romcom hijinks to family drama…and then back again.

Also available in ebookAudiobook, and Audio CD (narrated by Emily Woo Zeller)

A teen outcast is simultaneously swept up in a whirlwind romance and down a rabbit hole of dark family secrets when another Taiwanese family moves to her small, predominantly white midwestern town in this remarkable new novel from the critically acclaimed author of American Panda, which The Wall Street Journal called “weepingly funny.”

Seventeen-year-old Ali Chu knows that as the only Asian person at her school in middle-of-nowhere Indiana, she must be bland as white toast to survive. 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 Āh-lěe, 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 “they belong together” 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’s mom finds out about the relationship, she forces Ali to end it. As Ali covertly digs into the why behind her mother’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 nineteenth-century China (a retelling of the Chinese folktale The Butterfly Lovers) are interspersed with Ali’s narrative and intertwined with her fate.

Praise for Our Wayward Fate

“With OUR WAYWARD FATE, Chao establishes herself as one of the premier writers in contemporary YA. Ali’s story is one of young love, long-hidden secrets, cultural divides, and the pressure, not only to find balance between one’s history and future, but to understand how the one affects the other. No one writes family in all its beauty and complexity like Gloria Chao.”
—David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik, Kids of Appetite, and Mosquitoland

“Chao is a master of combining humor with more serious moments in a story that’s sure to stick with you for a long time.” —Buzzfeed

“This honest and hilarious love story will have teens entranced. With whip-smart dialog and a fast-paced mystery, OUR WAYWARD FATE is the perfect book for any teen.” —Children’s Book Review

Beautifully heartbreaking. With authentic teen voices that will help readers easily connect with the characters and their stories, OUR WAYWARD FATE is an excellent choice for readers who love a mix of contemporary and historical fiction.” —BookPage

“OUR WAYWARD FATE is [an] amazing story about juggling family expectations and what you want for yourself. If that’s not the essential teen journey, we’re not sure what is.” Paste Magazine

“This is more than a coming-of-age novel, and readers will fall in love with Ali.”—School Library Journal
“Chao brings readers a witty protagonist who breaks stereotypes of Chinese Americans by simply being herself.” —Kirkus
[an] inventive, deeply heartfelt love story that explores connections of many kinds.”Booklist

“Ali’s first-person narration employs colloquial, authentic teen language. . . . Also noteworthy is Chao’s inclusion of a retelling of the famous Chinese “Butterfly Lovers” legend; the retelling is parsed out between chapters, providing valuable insight into Ali’s culture.” —The Horn Book

Available in hardcover, paperbackebook, and audiobook (narrated by Emily Woo Zeller)

Four starred reviews for this incisive, laugh-out-loud contemporary debut about a Taiwanese-American teen whose parents want her to be a doctor and marry a Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer despite her squeamishness with germs and crush on a Japanese classmate.

At seventeen, Mei Lu should be in high school, but skipping fourth grade was part of her parents’ master plan. Now a freshman at MIT, she is on track to fulfill the rest of this predetermined future: become a doctor, marry a preapproved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer, produce a litter of babies.

With everything her parents have sacrificed to make her cushy life a reality, Mei can’t bring herself to tell them the truth—that she (1) hates germs, (2) falls asleep in biology lectures, and (3) has a crush on her classmate Darren Takahashi, who is decidedly not Taiwanese.

But when she reconnects with her brother, Xing, who is estranged from the family for dating the wrong woman, Mei starts to wonder if all the secrets are truly worth it. Can she find a way to be herself, whoever that is, before her web of lies unravels?

From debut author Gloria Chao comes a hilarious, heartfelt tale of how unlike the panda, life isn’t always so black and white.
