Named after Valentine’s Day, Valentina Tran loves the holiday until she finds out the truth of what happened between her parents. The spirit of Saint Valentine tells her she is cursed in love. She is ready to believe this until she receives a paper heart from a mysterious lion dancer one Lunar New Year festival, prompting her desire to change her destiny.

Finding peace in lion dancing since his father’s death, Jae notices Val at the Lunar New Year festival and hands her a paper heart but his cousin Leslie also sees her and they end up dating. Jae feels a connection with Val. Both struggle with spirits haunting them.

LUNAR NEW YEAR LOVE STORY was a fantastic graphic novel filled with gorgeous illustrations and an emotional love story on multiple levels. The characters were compelling. I loved the exploration of family and culture. Both poignant and heartwarming, LUNAR NEW YEAR LOVE STORY was an excellent read that I’d highly recommend to fans of graphic novels.
