Crazy Rich Asians
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 her the key details. First, that his childhood home looks like a palace; second, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and third, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
From the time they step off the plane, Rachel may as well have a target on her back. Her relaxing vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers. Written by Kevin Kwan. Paperback, 544 pages.
