Description from Amazon
Two friends. One fake dating scheme. What could possibly go wrong?
Frank Li has two names. There’s Frank Li, his American name. Then there’s Sung-Min Li, his Korean name. No one uses his Korean name, not even his parents. Frank barely speaks any Korean. He was born and raised in Southern California.
Even so, his parents still expect him to end up with a nice Korean girl–which is a problem, since Frank is finally dating the girl of his dreams: Brit Means. Brit, who is funny and nerdy just like him. Brit, who makes him laugh like no one else. Brit . . . who is white.
As Frank falls in love for the very first time, he’s forced to confront the fact that while his parents sacrificed everything to raise him in the land of opportunity, their traditional expectations don’t leave a lot of room for him to be a regular American teen. Desperate to be with Brit without his parents finding out, Frank turns to family friend Joy Song, who is in a similar bind. Together, they come up with a plan to help each other and keep their parents off their backs. Frank thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, but when life throws him a curveball, he’s left wondering whether he ever really knew anything about love—or himself—at all.
Notes About the Description
I received a sampler of this book at Book Con 2019 and wasn’t sure about it at first. After reading the sampler, and seeing the gorgeous finished copy, I had to preorder it and I have to read it. The story sounds so fun and I don’t normally read contemporary. I feel like this is a perfect way to dive in.
I’m hoping to tackle this book this month but it seems more likely that I’ll get to it in October. I am super excited to read it as the story sounds adorable.
Stay tuned for my review!
