Summary of the Book:

Her ex-boyfriend wants her back. Her former best friend is in town. When did Hannah’s life become a K-drama?

Hannah Cho had the next year all planned out—the perfect summer with her boyfriend, Nate, and then a fun senior year with their friends.

But then Nate does what everyone else in Hannah’s life seems to do—he leaves her, claiming they have nothing in common. He and all her friends are newly obsessed with K-pop and K-dramas, and Hannah is not. After years of trying to embrace the American part and shunning the Korean side of her Korean American identity to fit in, Hannah finds that’s exactly what now has her on the outs.

But someone who does know K-dramas—so well that he’s actually starring in one—is Jacob Kim, Hannah’s former best friend, whom she hasn’t seen in years. He’s desperate for a break from the fame, so a family trip back to San Diego might be just what he needs…that is, if he and Hannah can figure out what went wrong when they last parted and navigate the new feelings developing between them.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book is sweet. I love K-dramas. I have been watching them for years. This book was a bit of a change of pace. Hannah had everything planned out only for it to come tumbling down around her as her boyfriend dumps her. She embraced her American traits and ignored her Korean ones. Korean culture is all the rage and that has her on the outs with those around her. Jacob who was in a K-drama is having struggles of his own. He needs a break and going home to San Diego is what he thinks he needs. Also trying to figure out what happened between him and his best friend Hannah. I loved this and waiting to see what the author has in store next in her writing.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
