Description

An instant New York Times best seller and number one indie best seller!

A William C. Morris YA Debut Award Finalist

An Asian Pacific American Librarians Association Honor Book

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.

In this moving debut novel, David Yoon takes on the question of who am I? with a result that is humorous, heartfelt, and ultimately unforgettable.

Commentaires

"Extraordinary...a beautifully layered novel about first love, tribalism and that brief, magical period when kids have one foot in high school, one foot out the door...Yoon explores themes of racism, forgiveness and acceptance without getting earnest or preachy or letting anyone off the hook. And there’s a universality to the story that cuts across cultures." (New York Times)

"With echoes of John Green and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, it’s poised to be the biggest YA debut of the year." (Entertainment Weekly)

"Yoon’s fresh and nuanced approach to Frank’s struggle to navigate cultural tensions amplifies both the vulnerabilities and the strengths that can come with being a child of immigrants.... Yoon underscores the value of honoring both who you are and where you come from." (Time magazine)

sweet easy read/listen

This book is well written and performed. I definitely recommend the audio performance. sometimes it was over the top, but overall, I loved it. These characters are high schoolers and sometimes it feels like we are reading about 30-year-olds.

Boring and flat

I wasn't a fan. The characters felt like unlikeable caricatures (similar to the characters in The Big Bang Theory). The dialogue was really odd. I couldn't relate to or care about any of them. The whole thing is predictable from the end of chapter four and it's just a drudge from there.

Good story

I liked how it challenges racism and even the main character's whole view of his parents. It is a good coming-of-age story.

another great ya book.

I honestly think all late teens should read it. it's so realistic. the characters were very easy to relate to. if anybody gets a chance they should really check it out.
