A Crazy Rich Sequel

Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians, has a sequel coming out on June 16 called China Rich Girlfriend. Crazy Rich Asians, Kwan’s debut novel, centered on New Yorker Rachel Chu and her crazy summer in Singapore where her perceptions of her boyfriend’s family culture are torn down.

The sequel takes place a couple of years after the events of the first novel. Protagonist Rachel Chu returns in this installment of the series and we’ll get to see her journey to China to find her true father. Similarly to the first book, China Rich Girlfriend will feature the zany real life situations that Kwan has experienced.

The book is expected to bring back the same crazy stories and also reflect the cultural changes that mainland China has transitioned through since the publication of Crazy Rich Asians.

What other book releases are you looking forward to this summer? Let us know in the comments!
