Description

Gossip Girl meets Crazy Rich Asians in this dramatic debut novel about a group of private high schoolers in an affluent Southern Californian suburb.

"We need diverse stories! Belinda Lei has written a fun, mysterious, sexy book that explores the full breadth of the Asian American experience with nuance and wit. Congrats on a terrific debut!" - Maulik Pancholy, actor, activist and Stonewall Honor-winning author of THE BEST AT IT

"He had class, he had style, and he certainly was not fresh off the boat. He was fresh off a private jet."

Hunter and Trisha Wang, like the majority of their classmates, are trying to balance AP classes, Ivy League applications, numerous extracurriculars, and tumultuously juicy social lives, all while living in their affluent, suburban bubble. Will Hunter get into Stanford and still be able to maintain his relationship with the "it girl" Sierra Jones? Will Trisha find love with outsider Ray Martinez and figure out what's going on with her influencer best friend, Pamela Shah? Will billionaire newcomer Jack Zhou figure out how to fit in? And who exactly is The Stranger? Welcome to Winchester High, a prestigious college preparatory school where students live seemingly perfect, privileged lives.

In Not THAT Rich, we find that things are not always what they seem, and no matter how much money, power or influence you think you have, high school will always be complicated.

Review quote

"We need diverse stories! Belinda Lei has written a fun, mysterious, sexy book that explores the full breadth of the Asian American experience with nuance and wit. Congrats on a terrific debut!" - Maulik Pancholy, actor, activist and Stonewall Honor-winning author of THE BEST AT IT

"Intriguingly juicy yet refreshingly thought-provoking. High school drama mixed with insight into educational social pressures in the Asian-American community." - Melissa Dargan, YouTube Creator and Founder of TourTrackr

"Lei brings a refreshing taste of Asian-American representation into the phenomenal world of YA literature, using depth and narrative to portray an insightful search of identity amidst conflicting societal pressures." - Giboom Park, Author of Not Your Yellow Fantasy

"Reading Not THAT Rich felt as easy as gossiping and sipping Bubble Tea with girlfriends. Yet, woven throughout Lei's smooth prose are thought-provoking insights. With humor, honesty, and wit, Lei captures the good, the bad, and the ugly of navigating young adulthood in an affluent, predominantly Asian American community." - Vanessa Hung

"Lei's book masterfully weaves together nuanced stories from a set of multidimensional characters. I wish this type of representation in media had been around when I was younger to show me Asian Americans didn't have to be confined to the same old and tired tropes." - Rebecca Liu
