Laura Li seems perfect in every way--beautiful, kind, smart. At her job in the school library she is smiling and helpful to everyone, and at home she cares for her ailing brother like a dutiful daughter. But after midnight a very different Laura Li secretly sneaks out to wild dance clubs-desperate to escape the pressures exerted by her parents. This riveting story shows what happens when one teenage girl is denied the freedom to determine her own identity.
