Description

'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

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

Frank Li is caught between his parents' expectations and his own California life.

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

But Frank has fallen for Brit, who is smart, beautiful and white.

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 thinks fake-dating is the perfect plan, but it leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love - or himself - at all.

'A love story, a treatise on racism, a peek into adolescence, and a welcome to Korean-American culture, all at once.' Jodi Picoult

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


'Touching on issues of race, identity, and first love, Frankly in Love is the charming, funny, romantic young adult crossover novel that both adults and teens will enjoy in equal measure.' PopSugar
