Summary
"Ghanaian-American Angela Appiah has checked off all the boxes for the Perfect Immigrant Daughter: enroll in an elite medical school, snag a suitable lawyer/doctor/engineer boyfriend, surround self with a gaggle of successful and/or loyal friends. But then it all quickly falls apart: she bombs the most important exam of her medical career, her boyfriend dumps her, and her best friend pulls away. And her parents, whose approval seems to hinge on how closely she follows the path they chose for her, are a lot less proud of their daughter than they were when things were going according to plan ... Angie, who has always faced her problems by 'working twice as hard to get half as far,' is at a loss. Suddenly, she begins to question everything: her career choice, her friendships, why she's attracted to men who don't love her as much as she loves them. And just when things couldn't get more complicated, enter Ricky Gutiérrrez--brilliant, thoughtful, sexy, and, most importantly, seems to see Angie for who she is instead of what she can represent"--Dust jacket flap
