On the outside, 28 year old Fiona Yu appears to be just another Hello Kitty - an educated, well-mannered Asian American woman. Secretly, she feels torn between the traditional Chinese values of her family and the social mores of being an American girl.

To escape the burden of carrying her family's honor, Fiona decides to take her own virginity. In the process, she makes a surprising discovery that reunites her with a long-lost friend, Sean Killroy. Sean introduces her to a dark world of excitement, danger, cunning, and cruelty, pushing her to the limits of her own morality.

This is a book that I finished more than a month ago. I thought I had forgotten what this book was about, for I had read a lot of books after this one. But then I saw the cover and I remember it all again. I honestly think that it was an okay book. It definitely surprised me, for actually liking this book and for the book itself, because I didn't see where the plot will go when I first pick this book up.

At the beginning of the book, I honestly thought that it will only tell the story of how Fiona lost her virginity and maybe deal with the problems afterward. That was my expectation after reading the synopsis. But this book took another turn and just started to go in a different direction. And I like it, because I didn't see it coming.

I don't have any favorite character, because they're pretty annoying here and there. Take Fiona for an example. I still can't believe how she would not argue with her parents for their weird decisions for her. I mean, I came from Asia, too. With demanding parents and environments and all the other stuffs. But that doesn't mean that I can't stand up for myself, especially when it comes to a very important matters. I did enjoy how Fiona's character develop, though, when she started to actually deal with her problems.

I don't have any issues with the writing style, and it was good to learn more about Asian families' culture in America. Overall, a 3 out of 5 stars book for me. Not bad, kinda blew my mind a bit, but not that special for me.
