    Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is an entertaining debut novel. Charles Wang, a man with a self-made, multi-million dollar cosmetics manufacturing business, loses it all in the financial crisis. He and his second wife, Barbra, leave their Los Angeles estate in an old car, pick-up Charles’ youngest daughter at boarding school, pick-up his son at Arizona State University, and set across country to upstate New York to move in with his oldest daughter. Their road trip is a satirical, wry and insightful look at family, which is all that is left when you lose it all. What I liked: the characters develop slowly along the way, progressing from rich and spoiled to caring about people rather than things. What I didn’t like: the time spent on Saina’s contemporary art world, as it is something beyond my comprehension, or the Chinese phrases and/or dialogue without any translation (I’m sure it was to remind me that I’m the outsider, but it was just annoying).
