Lion Boy and Drummer Girl reimagines the traditional art of lion dance as a pop sensation that has taken Asia by storm. Lion dancers are the new idols, but none are as charismatic and handsome as US import Ricky Ang. Yet while other Leopop wannabes seek fame and fortune, Ricky dances to the beat of his own drum.Though surrounded by athletic and good-looking young men, drummer girl Ong YingYing is, ironically, the greatest cynic of the Leopop wave. “Don’t fall for a Lion Dancer!” her mother always warned her. “He will just break your heart.”    About the Author Pauline Loh is an award-winning writer with 30 years of writing experience.
