What do you do when your world is falling apart? Robin Lee would do anything to ease the tension between her parents. But their marriage is not hers to fix. What she can do is help a lonely cook in Chinatown by pretending, along with her grandmother, to be his long-lost family. The thing is, once Robin starts pretending, she doesn't want to stop. At Cook's restaurant, Robin's a star and a whole new world opens up to her. In her make-believe father she finally discovers a sense of her Chinese heritage--and a new understanding of her old-fashioned grandmother who turns out to be more progressive than she'd ever imagined.
