Description

No, no one asked, but Holly Kim will tell you what she thinks anyway.



Fifteen-year-old Holly Kim is the copyeditor for her high school's newspaper. When she accidentally submits an article that rips everyone to shreds, she gets her own column and rants her way through the school year. Can she survive homecoming, mean-girl cliques, jocks, secret admirers, Valentine's Day, and other high school embarrassments, all while struggling to balance her family's traditional Korean values?In this hilarious debut, Maurene Goo takes a fresh look at trying to fit in without conforming to what's considered normal in high school and how to manage parental expectations without losing one's individuality...or being driven insane.

Review quote

Praise for Since You Asked . . .

A drily funny account of a teenager who feels like an outsider in her high school, family, and society in general . . . Goo capably demonstrates the pressures and expectations Holly is under, and that a sense of humor is valuable for dealing with both. -Publishers Weekly

Had me laughing the whole way through . . . Holly is a character that will stay in your mind well after you put the book down. And the letters from her secret admirer sprinkled throughout were pure genius! -Glitter Magazine
