 Second generation Asian-Australian Lucy wins a scholarship to prestigious Laurinda, a private school that has rested on privilege for far too long. In this epistolary novel, the author deftly showcases thorny issues of class, race, immigration and merit, while skillfully examining Lucy's growth into a young woman.
