“A girl who can make you laugh is worth laughing with forever.”
This was such a cute and fun rom com.
Seriously. The story of my life! Except the fake dating, which was genius. Being Chinese, I connected with Frank on so many levels.
I loved the exploration of cultural differences and stereotypes. It was done in a very respectful manner.
There was a diverse cast of characters which was very well-written.
Frank was easy to love. He’s nerdy, funny and witty. You really feel for him with some of the challenges he experiences. It was fun watching him fall in love for the first time.
I really enjoyed the dynamic between Q and Frank. Q was exactly the kind of BFF you’d want!
If you were a fan of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, I think you’ll enjoy this one too!
Is this one on your TBR? Have you read it? What did you think?
High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo–his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents’ traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance–“Date Korean”–which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful–and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a similar predicament, and so they make a pact: they’ll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. Frank thinks it’s the perfect plan, but in the end, Frank and Joy’s fake-dating maneuver leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love–or himself–at all.
