Lunar New Year Love Story is a story about a girl who has a very complicated relationship with love and Valentine's Day, in particular. It's complicated by family relationships, secrets, trauma, and her ability to see and communicate with St. Valentine! She is given a year to find true love all while discovering how love can be flawed and confusing, but also deeper than she could have imagined.

I loved this magical, contemporary love story about Asian American kids and families having, losing, and gaining various forms of completely universal and all-too-human experiences of love. It's relatable on so many levels and full of both humor, insight, and of course, heart.

I strongly recommend this book to readers who enjoy beautiful illustrations, a compelling love story, a dash of fantasy, and characters that feel as real as your family.
