Description

Frank loves Joy.
Joy loves Frank.
At least, that's what they tell their parents . . .

Frank's parents emigrated from Korea, and have pretty much one big rule for Frank - he must only date Korean girls.

So, when Frank falls for Brit, who is smart, beautiful and white, he needs a plan.

His friend Joy Song is in the same boat and so they make a pact: they'll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom.

Frank and Joy agree that fake-dating is the perfect plan.

But, they soon discover that the only thing more complicated than pretending to be in love, is actually falling in love.

Soon to become a Paramount film with with Unjoo Moon confirmed to direct!

'A beautifully layered novel about first love, tribalism and that brief, magical period when kids have one foot in high school, one foot out the door' New York Times

'Think John Green by way of To All the Boys I've Loved Before" Entertainment Weekly
