American Panda by Gloria Chao

Mei Lu is 17 years-old and already in college.  Skipping a year of school is all part of her parents’ master plan of Mei going to MIT, becoming a doctor and marrying a pre-approved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer.  But there is one problem – Mei doesn’t want to become a doctor, hates germs and Biology makes her fall asleep.  On top of that, she has a total crush on her Darren Takahashi, a Japanese fellow MIT student.
