Description

9:00 p.m.: Lucky is the biggest Korean pop star on the scene, and tomorrow is her debut on The Tonight Show, hopefully a breakout performance for her career. She's in her fancy hotel, and her feet are killing her. She's dying for a hamburger.

10:00 p.m.: Jack is sneaking into a fancy hotel, on assignment for his tabloid reporter job that he keeps secret from his high-profile journalist father. On his way out, he runs into a girl wearing hotel slippers who is determined to find a hamburger. She looks familiar. She's kind of cute. He's really curious.

12:00 a.m.: Nothing will ever be the same.

With her trademark humor and voice, Maurene Goo delivers a sparkling story of taking a chance on love-and finding yourself along the way.

Review quote

"A quick-paced, entertaining plot, witty banter, and expert characterization make this a light and satisfying read, and a wealth of local details effortlessly immerse the reader in the worlds of Hong Kong and K-pop stardom. Charming and swoonworthy." --Kirkus Reviews

"Lucky and Jack are both charming, funny narrators with serious chemistry. . .They share comfortable banter, smoldering looks, a few intense kisses--and in between, earnest existential conversations about pursuing their dreams and living meaningful lives. Readers, no matter their celebrity status, should relate." --The Horn Book

[Goo's] most charming to date. . .A delightful romp. --The New York Times


The Way You Make Me Feel:
With massive amounts of humor, heart, and soul, this love letter to L.A. and its diversity is a celebration of friends, family, and food trucks. --Booklist, starred review

Sweet, sexy, hilarious, and featuring a spectacular father-daughter relationship, this book will fly off the shelves. --School Library Journal, starred review

I Believe in a Thing Called Love:
"Desi's implementation of measures such as 'Be Caught in an Obviously Lopsided Love Triangle' yields hilarious, at times unintended results, lending this teen rom-com a surprisingly thoughtful conclusion . . . [Goo's] funny, engaging narrative also delivers powerful messages of inclusion and acceptance." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The art-centric romance that develops between Desi and Luca is rewarding to follow, as are their parental relationships, particularly that between Desi and her widowed Appa. Goo simultaneously honors and deconstructs romantic tropes, both in general and specific to K dramas, and does so using a wonderfully diverse cast." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
