I am so delighted to be giving this book away to Fug Nation today. I’ve read it, and it’s beyond charming — I really think you will enjoy it. (It’s also gotten starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Kirkus, so I have back-up on this!)
What’s it about? Via Amazon:
Desi Lee knows how carburetors work. She learned CPR at the age of five. As a high school senior, she has never missed a day of school and never had a B. But in her charmed school life, there’s one thing missing―she’s never had a boyfriend. In fact, she’s a known disaster in romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation magnet. When the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides it’s time to tackle her flirting failures. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has watched obsessively for years―in which the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. Armed with her “K Drama Rules for True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos. All’s fair in love and Korean dramas, right? But when the fun and games turn to feelings, Desi finds out that real-life love is about way more than just drama. Maurene Goo’s I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE is a fun, heartwarming story of falling in love―for real.
