A freshman at MIT, seventeen-year-old Mei Lu tries to live up to her Taiwanese parents' expectations, but no amount of tradition, obligation, or guilt prevent her from hiding several truths--that she is a germaphobe who cannot become a doctor, she prefers dancing to biology, she decides to reconnect with her estranged older brother, and she is dating a Japanese boy.
To stop her parents pressuring her to accept a proposal from Hongbo, the wealthiest (and douchiest) young bachelor in their tight-knit Asian American community, Chloe rents a boyfriend. She hired him from Rent for Your 'Rents, a company specializing in providing fake boyfriends trained to impress even the most traditional Asian parents. But when Chloe starts to fall for her fake boyfriend, her carefully curated life begins to unravel.
