She does not regret putting aside her MIT and dental degrees to write, and she is grateful to spend her days in fictional characters' heads instead of real people's mouths.

"With Our Wayward Fate, Chao establishes herself as one of the premier writers in contemporary YA. Ali's story is one of young love, long-hidden secrets, cultural divides, and the pressure, not only to find balance between one's history and future, but to understand how the one affects the other. No one writes family in all its beauty and complexity like Gloria Chao." --David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of Mosquitoland and The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik

"Chao is a master of combining humor with more serious moments in a story that's sure to stick with you for a long time." --BuzzFeed

"Our Wayward Fate is another amazing story about juggling family expectations and what you want for yourself. If that's not the essential teen journey, we're not sure what is." --Paste Magazine

"This is more than a coming-of-age novel, and readers will fall in love with Ali." --SLJ

"Chao brings readers a witty protagonist who breaks stereotypes of Chinese Americans by simply being herself." --Kirkus Reviews

"[An] inventive, deeply heartfelt love story that explores connections of many kinds." --Booklist
