Summary
Danny Cheng, a Chinese-American teen, has always known his parents have secrets. But when he discovers a box in his father's closet filled with letters and a file on a powerful Bay Area family, he realizes there's more to his family's past than he ever imagined. Danny has been an artist for as long as he can remember and it seems his path is set. Still, contemplating a future without his best friend, Harry Wong, by his side makes Danny feel a panic he can barely put into words. Harry and Danny's lives are deeply intertwined and as they approach the one-year anniversary of a tragedy that shook their friend group to its core, Danny can't stop wondering if Harry is truly in love with his girlfriend, Regina Chan. When Danny digs deeper into his parents' past, he uncovers a secret that disturbs the foundations of his family history. With everything he loves in danger of being stripped away, Danny must face the ghosts of the past in order to build a future that belongs to him
