Publisher's 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.

more real then grand

as a story it was everything I predicated but that doesn't mean it wasn't good cliche stories are what alot of us warm upto for the whole point of it being cliche it being familiar and i will admit it had many similarities to my other reads to me it seemed to miss something that something being lets say the grand plot; the perfect ending to romance the chocolates that we melt in our hearts as we devour them as pages but we lacked this we lacked this cliche grand ending but got a realer story one that ends with a fair well to us more then a fair well to the character and in all honesty could have a sequel :that being a request for me as there seemed the needed for more

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.
