What happens when your love of chemistry is more hypothesis than reality? Weike Wang’s debut effort is a humorous, honest, and painful portrait of a young Chinese-American woman at a crossroads in life and love. She is faced with failed research, a loss of focus in her future, demanding parents, and a boyfriend who has been patiently waiting to pop the marriage question. Eventually, she’s forced to decide life’s ultimate question: what do I really want? Wang’s assured prose and characters make for a sparkling and riotous ride! Paired with Hope Jahren’s insightful memoir Lab Girl, you’ve got two dynamic and feminine voices of life, love, and science!
