Publisher Description

For fans of Crazy Rich Asians: Meet the Wangs, the unforgettable immigrant family whose spectacular fall from glorious riches to (still name-brand) rags brings them together in a way money never could.

Charles Wang, a brash, lovable businessman who built a cosmetics empire and made a fortune, has just lost everything in the financial crisis. So he rounds up two of his children from schools that he can no longer afford and packs them into the only car that wasn’t repossessed. Together with their wealth-addicted stepmother, Barbra, they head on a cross-country journey from their foreclosed Bel-Air home to the Upstate New York retreat of the eldest Wang daughter, Saina. 
“Highly entertaining” (BuzzFeed), this “fresh Little Miss Sunshine” (Vanity Fair) is a “compassionate and bright-eyed novel” (New York Times Book Review), an epic family saga, and a new look at what it means to belong in America. “When the Wangs take the world, we all benefit” (USA Today).

Fun and sad and a real good read

A really fun road trip story, the characters are a very likable bunch, and you find yourself hoping it all works out for them, as individuals, and as a family.

Finally put the book down after dragging through two thirds of it. No likable characters, no interesting situations, tedious sorts of lessons in economics & history worked in that don’t drive the story in any meaningful way. Halfway through the book the only thing I was looking forward to was getting out of their car & off this road trip.

Couldn’t Finish

The author tried too hard to mimic the writing style of Kevin Kwan. Unfortunately, it just fell flat. I got through 34% of the book and had to quit. I normally read books all the way through, but I’d rather quit now and spend my time reading something else.
