Entering adolescence in her parents' Chinese restaurant, Candace hoards her money in the hopes of eventually escaping the family business, but wonders if she is up to the kind of fast-paced life demonstrated by her best friend. By the author of The Dim Sum of All Things. Original.

HARPERCOLL

Fourteen-year-old Candace Ong is wasting away in wonderland—Eggroll Wonderland, the restaurant where her under-Americanized family toils in San Francisco. She loves rock candy and rock music, jelly beans and jelly shoes—and hangs with her best friend Ruby, whose wild life she envies. Candace wants more than another stifling summer stuck in the kitchen. So when a new opportunity arises, she leaps at the chance—even though it means leaving home to experience a tantalizing, dangerous life far beyond the dim sum ho hum. But the waiting world may be a lot more than one brainiac Chinese Lolita can safely handle.
