Originally published in Australia by Black Inc. in 2014 under title: Laurinda.
In Australia, Lucy tries to balance her life at home surrounded by her Chinese immigrant family, with her life at a pretentious private school.
Lucy is ambitious and smart, and she has just received the opportunity of a lifetime: a scholarship to a prestigious Australian school. It's a ticket out of her broken-down suburb and away from her Chinese immigrant family. She is soon welcomed into the Cabinet, the supremely popular trio who wield influence over classmates and teachers alike. Linh is blunt, strong-willed, and fearless. She is also Lucy's last solid link to life before private school, but she is eclipsed by the glamour of the Cabinet. Is it possible to grow into the person you want to be without leaving yourself behind?
