The only Asian person at her school in Plainhart, Indiana, Ali Chu ignores the clueless racism from her classmates and teachers. When Chase Yu's family arrives in town, Ali tries to ignore the 'they belong together' whispers, but they develop a friendship rooted in competitive martial arts, joking in two languages, and, most importantly, pushing back against the discrimination they face. When Ali's mom forces her to end the friendship, she uncovers secrets about her family and Chase that force her to question everything she thought she knew about life, love, and her unknowable future.

Ali Chu is fed up with the racism she experiences in her small Indiana town. When Chase Yu moves to town, Ali no longer feels alone. But for some reason Ali's mother doesn't want them to be together, and Ali is determined to find out why. This book touches on a number of topics, such as racism, first love, family history, and arranged marriages. Ali is a smart and funny heroine readers will root for.
