Really engaging and hard to put down. It follows the life of a Korean-American woman named Casey Han who has just graduated from Princeton. She has a lot of issues; her dad hits her and throws her out of the house within the first few pages, she has a Gatsby-esque complex with money (except that she doesn't make any), and she basically doesn't know what she wants to do in life. There are several secondary characters, and my favorite aspect of the book was that the author gets into every character's head, even the doorman of Casey's apartment building. It seems that everything that can go wrong does go wrong; Casey catches her college boyfriend cheating on her, her friend's husband has an affair, she has to work at a department store because she can't find a real job...etc. But the ending provides some hope, although it is a bit vague. Definitely recommend this one!
