However, I glanced through the summary on Goodreads so I actually didn’t know who she’ll end up with. The counselors and teachers look the other way when the students sneak out at night to go clubbing or pair up. I am from that community and really connected to it. I loved the movie, Crazy Rich Asians. But what Ever discovers is that the program is affectionately known as Loveboat, a summer-long party where adults turn a blind eye and teens have the freedo.

Do YA romance novels help readers sort out their feelings and learn how to communicate, or do they create false expectations about teen relationships? Loveboat, Taipei skillfully and beautifully captures Ever’s struggle to understand who she is and what she wants. i dont know how anything can repair that kind of betrayal and the way ever forgave her was just......not realistic. For the most part. Hence, Abigail writing about Ever’s love and passion for dance was something fresh. It's such an addictive read full of well built up characters & a plot full of surprises. Now I’m wondering if, at Liberty Square, a vast public plaza, there are people performing dances like what Ever and her friends did. But don’t go too far like what Ever did – won’t spoil this part. Ever Wong’s summer plans are completely disrupted when her parents send her off to Taipei to attend Chien Tan, an educational program meant to help Ever with her Mandarin skills and appreciation of her culture. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and we can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us with book 2.
In life, there are things that you cannot control and it’s harmful to sit and do nothing about it. This is also something I’m glad Abigail wrote about in the book. Suggest an update to this review. We have night markets in Malaysia too but if it’s a famous culture in a different country, it’s won’t be the same. The subject of a recent documentary, it was perhaps inevitable that it would be mined for a novel. But Chien Tan, nicknamed Loveboat by its students, is nothing like Ever expected. But, we really did like both of these men, and we saw how both challenged Ever in important ways.

That’s not to say she doesn’t love them, she obviously does, but her interactions with them revolve largely around the future they’ve imagined for her. by Simon & Schuster Children's UK.
Searching for streaming and purchasing options ... Common Sense is a nonprofit organization. But it’s the Chien Tan setting that sets this book apart. I didn’t entirely hate that, I get that these summer programs feel very heightened. Or maybe you should, just do whatever you want!
To me, the love triangle wasn’t the most interesting – we all know that there will be a love triangle. I’d always wonder why do high school kids in American movies get to stay out til late. LOVEBOAT, TAIPEI. Oh this sounds like such a fun read. Loveboat, Taipei introduces us to 18-year-old Ever Wong, who is sent by her parents to Taiwan to study Mandarin the summer before she’s supposed to begin med school in the fall. While I’ve never specifically had Ever’s experiences, the heart of them really resonated on a personal level (so much so that it made me emotional). Oh how I wish I got to visit Taiwan. I’m kidding!
The book also deals with dyslexia, mental health, racism, and abusive relationships. Is the book clean? This love triangle was most definitely done correctly!
