Description

Chinese-born Cece was adopted when she was two years old by her American parents. Living in Texas, she?s bored of her ho-hum high school and dull job. So when she learns about the S.A.S.S. program to Xi?an, China, she jumps at the chance. She?ll be able to learn about her passion?anthropology?and it will give her the opportunity to explore her roots. But when she arrives, she receives quite a culture shock. And the closer she comes to finding out about her birth parents, the more apprehensive she gets. Enter Will, the cute guy she first meets on the plane. He and Cece really connect during the program. But can he help her get accustomed to a culture she should already know about, or will she leave China without the answers she?s been looking for?
