Frankly in Love
By David Yoon
Narrated by Raymond J. Lee / 10 hours 10 minutes
“This book really hit it out of the park for me; as an Asian-American I could really relate to the main character in a lot of ways. An example of this, is Frank's wanting to please his parents, but yet also be his own person was something that I think most people, myself included can identify with. There are definitely plot twists that keep you on your toes. It was humorous, enjoyable, and well written. I would definitely re-read this one again! I think I would even like a physical copy!”Cassie, The Bluestocking Bookshop
