Cindy Pon launch party in San Diego

From Cindy Pon’s Upstream in our Universe page: “I love all the books that I write, but Want is especially dear as it features my birth city, Taipei. It was important to me to capture the vibrancy of Taipei — the colors, the sights, the sounds and smells — for the reader. I feel so fortunate that the amazingly talented Jason Chan, who did the cover art for Want, agreed to do a commission of my hero and heroine. All pre-order copies of Want will be personalized to your preference and signed, and include a postcard of Jason Chan’s art plus a brush art card of my own peach blossoms.

Jason Zhou survives in a divided society where the elite use their wealth to buy longer lives. The rich wear special suits, protecting them from the pollution and viruses that plague the city, while those without suffer illness and early deaths. Frustrated by his city's corruption and still grieving the loss of his mother who died as a result of it, Zhou is determined to change things, no matter the cost. 
With the help of his friends, Zhou infiltrates the lives of the wealthy in hopes of destroying the international Jin Corporation from within. Jin Corp not only manufactures the special suits the rich rely on, but they may also be manufacturing the pollution that makes them necessary. 
Yet the deeper Zhou delves into this new world of excess and wealth, the more muddled his plans become. And against his better judgment, Zhou finds himself falling for Daiyu, the daughter of Jin Corp's CEO. Can Zhou save his city without compromising who he is, or destroying his own heart?
