Description

Genie Lo is one among droves of Ivy-hopeful overachievers in her sleepy Bay Area suburb. When she's not crushing it at volleyball, Genie is typically working on how to crack the elusive Harvard entry code. But when her hometown comes under siege from hellspawn straight out of Chinese folklore, her priorities are dramatically rearranged. Enter Quentin Sun, a mysterious new kid who becomes Genie's guide to battling demons. While Genie knows Quentin only as an attractive transfer student, in another reality he is Sun Wukong, the mythological Monkey King incarnate. Suddenly, acing the SATs is the least of Genie's worries.

This epic debut draws from Chinese mythology, features a larger-than-life heroine, and perfectly balances the realities of Genie's grounded Bay Area life with the absurd supernatural world she finds herself commanding.

Review quote

**STARRED REVIEW**
"A tough, self-disciplined Chinese-American teen deals with the supernatural derailing of her college-prep activities in this speculative fiction novel that draws on the folklore of the Chinese Monkey King... An exciting, engaging, and humorous debut that will appeal widely, this wraps up neatly enough but leaves an opening for further installments--here's hoping."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
