Counterfeit by Kirstin ChenAva Wong, a Chinese-American lawyer, seems to have a perfect life with a successful surgeon husband, a son, and a beautiful home. However, her marriage is crumbling, her law degree goes unused, and her toddler’s tantrums are overwhelming.

Winnie Fang, Ava’s college roommate from China, reenters her life after two decades. Winnie, now confident and immersed in luxury, runs a counterfeit handbag scheme. She recruits Ava, who has a U.S. passport, to help. When their success is threatened, and Winnie disappears, Ava faces consequences.

“Counterfeit” is a swift, surprising, and sharp feminist caper challenging the model minority myth. It explores luxury goods, Chinese factories, and the aspirations of two determined women.

Please join us for all our upcoming in-person Book Club meetings. We also will offer Zoom platform meetings for those not comfortable meeting in person at this time.
