Guess what! SINCE YOU ASKED by Maurene Goo is actually releasing tomorrow, 6-25, instead of the original July 1st release. YAY. Gotta love Scholastic for giving the world this fabulous debut a week early! So, my fellow bloggers, get in your car with cash in tow, turn on your engine, and drive to your local bookstore, ASAP. While you’re waiting for the store to open in the morning, you can read another book. Woo!
Fifteen-year-old Holly Kim is the copyeditor for her high school’s newspaper. When she accidentally submits an article that rips everyone to shreds, she gets her own column and rants her way through the school year. Can she survive homecoming, mean-girl cliques, jocks, secret admirers, Valentine’s Day, and other high school embarrassments, all while struggling to balance her family’s traditional Korean values?
In this hilarious debut, Maurene Goo takes a fresh look at trying to fit in without conforming to what’s considered “normal” in high school and how to manage parental expectations without losing one’s individuality…or being driven insane.
Sounds awesome, right?! In case you hadn’t heard the news, Jess (Reading Nook Reviews), Isabel (Sab the Book Eater), and I are hosting an awesome 3 winner giveaway at the end of July for this new release! We’ll also be interviewing Maurene and reviewing her book. You don’t want to miss it!
