What do you get when you drop a girl into a land seven thousand miles from her home, away from the prying eyes of her strict immigrant parents, and suddenly there’s sneaking out, clubbing all night and a list of firsts you couldn’t imagine checking off? A summer of self-discovery in Loveboat, Taipei.
Nicknamed Loveboat for the students’ frequent love spats, Ever, an obedient daughter, future doctor, and secret dancer suddenly finds herself surrounded by people she didn’t realize she’d been missing her whole life, including her first friend, the indomitable Sophie Ha; bad boy Xavier Yeh, an artist with a secret; and so-called Golden Boy, aka Rick Wu, the bane of Ever’s existence. This book truly has it all—drama, lies, mystery, intrigue, even love. Ever sifts through the many identities other people have thrust upon her, and by the end of the summer maybe, just maybe, finds out who she truly is.
Appearances can be deceiving and in Loveboat, Taipei, you learn that every character is more than what they seem and are multifaceted in more ways than one. That goes for you too. Find out how people label you and what you can do to break out of the stereotype below!

About Loveboat, Taipei
“Our cousins have done this program,” Sophie whispers. “Best kept secret. Zero supervision.”
And just like that, Ever Wong’s summer takes an unexpected turn. Gone is Chien Tan, the strict educational program in Taiwan that Ever was expecting. In its place, she finds Loveboat: a summer-long free-for-all where hookups abound, adults turn a blind eye, snake-blood sake flows abundantly, and the nightlife runs nonstop.
But not every student is quite what they seem:
Ever is working toward becoming a doctor but nurses a secret passion for dance. Rick Woo is the Yale-bound child prodigy bane of Ever’s existence whose perfection hides a secret. Boy-crazy, fashion-obsessed Sophie Ha turns out to have more to her than meets the eye. And under sexy Xavier Yeh’s shell is buried a shameful truth he’ll never admit.
When these students’ lives collide, it’s guaranteed to be a summer Ever will never forget.
