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.
Frankly in Love was such a good read. I enjoy the Korea culture in the book and the characters within it. The storyline was very interesting. Some parts of the book was fun, while there was some serious stuff going on in between.
Frankly life is complicated, since he part American and Korean. He works hard in school and do anything to please his parents. Then one day, Frankly falls with a girl, that his parents will never approve of.
Now Frankly must come up with a plan to keep seeing his girl and hiding from his parents. That’s where his Korean girl best friend comes in. They pretend to date. I mean what could possibly go wrong?
This book was kinda heartfelt read. It deals with some racist in it a bit. I feel bad for Frankly in the book, he deals with hiding from his family and the girl he love. This book has some family bonding moments in it and also some romance. Hopfully Frankly gets his life together in the end. This book is kinda like a Korea Drama which why I liked it so much. Looking for a good family book read, then you might like Frankly in Love.
Happy Reading and Release week of this book!!!
