Frankly in Love: a Novel by David Yoon

Frank Li was born and raised in Southern California. His family is Korean and his parents are very traditional. They would like him to date a Korean girl but Brit, who Frank falls in love with, is not Korean. This solution to this is for Frank to pretend to date Joy Song, a Korean friend.

Frank’s sister has married and been disowned by the family. This is hard for Frank because he and his sister were very close.

Frank’s best friend Q is black. These two play well against each other. Both intelligent and humorous, their dialogues are the best part of the book. These come out especially well in the audiobook so you might want to give that a try.

Well, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong! This book is great because of the romance, typical problems of relationships, family and senior year in high school, the humor and the characters. This may be a book you would enjoy, either as a book or an audiobook.
