Frankly in Love is the fake dating story of my dreams. Frank-Li, a Korean American kid in high school, is dating a white girl who he thinks his parents will not approve of. He and his family friend, Joy, who is also Korean American, devise a plan to pretend to date each other so he can keep seeing his girlfriend and she can keep seeing her boyfriend, who's Chinese. Of course, they start to develop feelings for each other instead. This book also explores Frank's cultural identity, his art, his relationship with his parents, and going away to college.

This book was beautifully written, the romance is adorable, and all the characters are well thought out and wonderfully written. I loved both of Nicola Yoon's books so when I saw her husband was writing one I had to get it, and I'm so glad I did. I'm very much looking forward to reading his new book, Super Fake Love Song, in November.
