David Yoon's Frankly In Love is a very sweet and entertaining coming-of-age story about Korean American Frank Li.

Frustrated and falling in love, Frank devises a plan to fake-date a fellow Korean American friend so they can date their real love interests in secret without facing their parents' disapproval. There were many cute scenes with the two teenagers trying their best to fool their parents while not letting their friends and true love interests in on the secret.

This book is focuses on the tried-and-true themes of teenage relationships, cultural identity, and family dynamics. I listened to the audiobook, wonderfully narrated by Raymond J. Lee, and enjoyed the experience for the most part. I had a few "why though??" issues with some plot choices but nothing serious enough to keep me from finishing this overall fun read.
