“What is this, some teen movie?” I cracked, suddenly feeling so nervous that I almost tripped down the stairs. I saved it with little jig, but their weird expressions confirmed that it was not a smooth move.
There’s something about the warmer weather that makes you want to pick up all the light, fluffy reads. If you’re looking for such novel, Maurene Goo’s The Way You Make Me Feel is a great one to reach for. I loved how Goo balances the importance of her lead’s many relationships: the father-daughter relationship, the enemies-to-friends relationship, and the budding romance. You can read my review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From the Goodreads Synopsis:
“Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn’t so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dad’s business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind?
With Maurene Goo’s signature warmth and humor, The Way You Make Me Feel is a relatable story of falling in love and finding yourself in the places you’d never thought to look.”
