Chinese American graduate student Rainy Sun lends her money too freely and needs to be repaid. Perhaps a job would help, but Rainy’s hoped-for emplyment turns out to be just more volunteer (over)work. Soon life’s spinning out of control, an ex-boyfriend isn’t ready to commit, an ex-lover is dead, and a very present grandmother has come to share Rainy’s small apartment. Devious plot twists range from match-making to murder, and plenty of mysteries lie in the background to Rainy’s curious relationships. It’s all good fun, grounded in Rainy’s excitable thoughts and dreams (including a “photo-burning ceremony with her friends Ben and Jerry”). And it’s very American, with loving details of student life, personal hygiene and spinach twisted on the fork. And cookies. Lots of characters, light-hearted and chatty, with a backstory waiting to be told in future volumes I’d guess.

Disclosure: I learned it was on a deal and I offer my honest review.
