Senior. David Yoon’s debut novel titled, Frankly in Love, pulls readers back to high school where senior Frank Li is dating Brit Means. Frank’s Korean name is Sung-Min Li, but no one uses it, and growing up in Southern California, he doesn’t speak much Korean. Yoon describes the tension between the expectations of parents to maintain heritage and an individual’s exploration of one’s identity. Yoon’s characters are relatable to all readers, the prose often witty, and the situations typical to all of us during our formative years.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
