I'm not usually a huge fan of any books that fall under the Contemporary genre, YA or otherwise.  However, I absolutely loved and enjoyed Frankly In Love.  The main character, Frank Li, is adorable and hilarious.  This book is so much more than a story of Frank Li in love.  The author, David Yoon, touches on some extremely important topics affecting today's youth including racism, parental pressure, diversity, inclusion, culture, customs, and more.  ⁣

The reader is easily able to understand the struggles that Frank and his group of friends faces, even if we can't personally relate to them.  If you're not a young adult, I still recommend giving this book a read, especially if you enjoy the Netflix/Canadian show Kim's Convenience.  Pre-order it now, or wait until it's in stores this Tuesday, September 10th! ⁣

Side note...I am dying to try barley tea now, as this is the second book I read in a row where it's mentioned multiple times. ⁣
