Asian American Girl Club’s Book Club account was kind enough to reveal the cover!

For fans of Jonathan Tropper, KJ Dell’Antonia, Jesse Sutanto, and Kevin Kwan, this “sharp, smart, and gloriously extra” (Nancy Jooyoun Kim, bestselling author of The Last Story of Mina Lee) debut follows a family of estranged Vietnamese women—cursed to never know love or happiness—as they reunite when a psychic makes a startling prediction. It’s a universal story about mothers and daughters, but I also think so many Vietnamese, Asian, first-gen, and second-gen will see themselves on the page, too. 💜

Carolyn is a charming and resplendent new voice to contemporary fiction, and I can’t tell you how special it is for me as a Vietnamese American woman to edit a fellow Vietnamese American—to see our heritage portrayed so precisely. So tenderly. I saw my own mother and aunties in the flawed and feisty matriarchs who sacrificed everything for family . . . only to forget themselves along the way. I saw myself in their young daughters who carry their mothers’ burdens, but fight to spread their wings and take flight. Yes, these women fall—a lot—but they don’t plummet to the ground; they find ways to land.

Here’s how you can support Carolyn’s novel:
