Weike Wang's novel was selected for the National Book Academy's 5 Under 35 Award. It's a deeply relatable story about a young woman who suddenly realizes that she's lost the love of chemistry that's driven her research as a Boston University graduate student. Meanwhile, her loving but infuriatingly successful boyfriend, a fellow scientist, proposes marriage, and the pressure threatens to overwhelm her. Who is she really, and what does she want?
