    Amulet Books, 9781419725487, August 8, 2017 (Young Adult)

    The Epic Crush of Genie Lo is here to fill that Buffy- or Sailor Moon-shaped hole in your life. Warm, action-packed, and absolutely the most fun you’ll have reading a book this summer. Give Genie Lo a CW series!”

    Allison Senecal, Old Firehouse Books (Fort Collins, CO)

    "Genie Lo’s singular mission in life is to get a scholarship to an Ivy League School. Her plans take a major detour when Quentin Sun, gorgeous new student and the Monkey King of China, charms her exacting mother, and introduces her to fighting yaoguai demons, and an alternate plane of existence where only localized rules of physics apply. Lee’s intense and creative adventure will keep you turning pages and anticipating more stories in the modern adventures of the Monkey King and his Ruyi Jingu Bang."

    Laura Delaney, Rediscovered Books (Boise, ID)

    "The new guy at school is hunky. The new guy stands up to bullies. The new guy is a bit of a trouble maker and strangely athletic. The new guy has a hairy tail? The new guy is the Monkey King, an ancient Chinese god who follow his own rules. The new guy has his eye on Genie Lo. And Genie wishes he didn't. Oh, and did I mention he is hunky? This is a face paced delicious twist on the bad-boy-at-school young adult novel. Genie and the Monkey King are both struggling to live their own lives. Genie so she can move out of her neighborhood and into a good school. The Monkey King because well..he's the Monkey King."
