From debut author Lily Chu comes a hilarious and thoughtful story of fame, family, and love for fans of Beach Read and Crazy Rich Asians.

When a mysterious black SUV pulls up next to Gracie Reed, she’s amazed to recognize Wei Fangli and Sam Yao, Chinese cinema's golden couple. She's even more shocked when Fangli proposes a deal: due to their uncanny resemblance, the famous actress wants Gracie to pretend to be her for the next two months. The catch? Gracie will have to be escorted by Sam, the most attractive (and rudest) man Gracie has ever met…

Soon Gracie moves into a world of luxury she never knew existed. But dealing with Sam—and playing the role of an elegant movie star—proves more difficult than Gracie ever imagined...especially when she learns the reason why Fangli needs her help, and two women are forced to reckon with the shocking secret that now unites them.
