Every year, thousands of students from China migrate to the US to study in their schools. They are known as the “parachutes”. This includes our protagonist, Claire Wang. Claire’s parents didn’t believe that she would pass the gaokao, which is China’s version of the SAT. They decide to send her to study at American Prep so she could at least be “foreign-educated”. Without much of a choice, Claire leaves behind her friends, boyfriend, and lavish lifestyle to live with Dani De La Cruz and her mother.
Dani is a Filipino student who, thanks to her scholarship, studies at American Prep. Even though she is the star debater on the school team, she works part-time cleaning the houses to help out her mom. When she hears that her mom is renting out their extra room to a rich girl from Shanghai, she is very displeased. Little does she know that they will have a lot more in common than they both realize.
