Summary of the Book:

How many dates will it take to find The One?

Jisu’s traditional South Korean parents are concerned by what they see as her lack of attention to her schoolwork and her future. Working with Seoul’s premiere matchmaker to find the right boyfriend is one step toward ensuring Jisu’s success, and going on the recommended dates is Jisu’s compromise to please her parents while finding space to figure out her own dreams. But when she flubs a test then skips out on a date to spend time with friends, her fed-up parents shock her by shipping her off to a private school in San Francisco. Where she’ll have the opportunity to shine academically—and be set up on more dates!

Navigating her host family, her new city and school, and more dates, Jisu finds comfort in taking the photographs that populate her ever-growing social media account. Soon attention from two very different boys sends Jisu into a tailspin of soul-searching. As her passion for photography lights her on fire, does she even want to find The One? And what if her One isn’t parent and matchmaker approved?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book is a bit intense. I have never been on blind day let alone more then one. She has to deal with her family, her host family, matchmaker, the dates, friends, and school. That is a lot for anyone to deal with and even as she grows in popularity and is in the needs of some soul searching. It is a good light hearted novel to read. I have head a few other things by this author and was not disappointed with this novel.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
