OK teen book about a "rebel" of a girl who finds out that maybe the nerdy kids aren't that nerdy after all. Technically a romance but more about friendship and family.

Cute- though the fantasy of a K-Pop idol falling for her teenaged paparazzo is definitely a farfetched fantasy.

Finished this a few days ago but was out of town-very cute YA read (and third in a row for my unintentional We Need Diverse Books read). Desi Lee is a super motivated Type A person in almost all aspects of her life... except for dating. When a cute new boy comes to their school, Desi decides she'll fix her flailures (flirting fails) by creating rules to get her man, derived from watching several series of K-Dramas.

I think I'd pick up on more references to tropes had I watched any k-dramas before, but it was a cute frame structure and she's such a likeable teen. Hooray for teen girls!… (lisätietoja)

Oh gosh, this was adorable. Maurene Goo is 2 for 2 with me for good, fun protagonists, though Clara is definitely more sarcastic and pranksterish than Desi Lee of I Believe In a Thing Called Love.

This book is definitely dated to 2018. Clara's dad runs a food truck called KoBra that serves Korean-Brazilian food (did you know: there are pretty substantial Asian diaspora communities in south and central America? Need MORE STORIES), and her absentee "social media influencer" mother travels around the world. Our plot is this: after performing a pop culturally hilarious prank at prom, Clara and arch-nemesis Rose Carver are required to work at Clara's dad's food truck for the summer, with their wages going towards damage from said prank. We learn about friendship and we learn about crushes and also parental disappointment. I was also pretty tickled at the terminology love interest boy uses for his grandparents (who are also ABCs, so heyyyy representation of us exclusion-era ABCs) and just... the diversity of family situations.

Also, all of the principal characters are people of color- Felix, Patrick, and/or Felix's girlfriend might be white, but it's honestly kind of refreshing to be like yes, this is some #ownvoices for us.

I see the upcoming title is "Somewhere Only We Know" and deals with a kpop idol- Korean archetypes and pop songs are Goo's thing, I guess?
