Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Frankly in Love by David Yoon.   

Frank Li is a high school senior living in Southern California. Frank's parents emigrated from Korea and have pretty much one big rule for Frank - he must date only Korean girls. 

But he's got strong feelings for a girl in his class, Brit - and she's not Korean. His friend Joy Song is in the same boat and knows her parents will never accept her boyfriend, 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.   

David Yoon's debut novel is a quirky, authentic, heartbreaking romantic comedy and a refreshingly different take on race, immigrant communities, friendship and family.

Grateful for this book

I love this book! At first I thought it would be just a fun, slightly cliche contemporary but it quickly turned into a beautiful, meaningful, sappy (sad but happy) story that will forever have a place on the bookshelf that is my heart 🌟

It’s actually a great first book

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes contemporary stories. I didn’t think it would live up to the hype surrounding it, but it does. Frank ley in love is a Great first book from this author. I found the story really good, especially for a first book, and I found the ending to be so unexpected. Also, I thought Raymond J. Lee gave A great performance as narrator.
