An identity crisis, final year exams and a boy called Timothée Chalamet is just the beginning!
Poppy Young, high school it-girl, struggles to adapt to her new outsider status, meanwhile usually quiet Qiu Ju Yang navigates being vulnerable in love and at home. What do these two opposites have in common? Turns out its more than just their names…
A heart-warming Gen Z story celebrating truth and identity that will have you cackling, cringing and a little choked up too.
Told in Mandarin, Shanghainese and English.
