David Tung Can't Have a Girlfriend Until He Gets Into an Ivy League College
"You're not allowed to have a girlfriend until college," my mother warned. "And you'd better get into an Ivy League school!" In David Tung Can't Have a Girlfriend Until He Gets Into an Ivy League College, novelist Ed Lin conjures up "a fast-paced, acid-tongued, hilarious teen drama for our age," says Marie Myung-Ok Lee, acclaimed author of Somebody's Daughterand Finding My Voice. Both playful and wryly observant, Ed Lin's YA-debut explores coming-of-age in the Asian diaspora while navigating relationships through race, class, and young love.
