ABOUT THE BOOK: High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo—his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents' traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance—"Date Korean"—which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful—and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a similar predicament, and so they make a pact: they'll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. This smart, romantic, and totally original coming-of-age YA contemporary debut about a Korean-American teen falling in (and out) of love is perfect for fans of The Sun is Also a Star and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. "With echoes of John Green and To All the Boys I've Loved Before, it's poised to be the biggest YA debut of the year." - Entertainment Weekly on FRANKLY IN LOVE "Yoon's stellar debut expertly and authentically tackles racism, privilege, and characters who are trying to navigate their Korean-American identity." - BuzzFeed ABOUT THE AUTHOR: David Yoon is a writer and designer who created the illustrations for the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Everything, Everything. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, novelist Nicola Yoon,
