Reviews

"Choi has penned a smart and funny read that is as much about finding your path as it is about falling in love...Choi's specificity, realistic dialogue, and humor ensure that the personal and romantic journeys feel warm and rewarding, but never saccharine."--Booklist, starred review
"Choi provides a lively cast of characters...[and] the rising action--filled with conflict, captivating events, and authentic-sounding, often humorous dialogue--will win readers, and teens like Pablo, who are unsure who they want to be, will relate to his dilemmas."--Publishers Weekly
"Choi pulls from themes in her previous book, Emergency Contact, and has created a compelling and quirky tale of love and negotiating early adulthood in New York City."--School Library Journal
"Choi has a real gift for creating a character so real and complex that she can crack his psyche open like a melon and pick through all the gnarly seeds."--NPR
"[C]aptivating, with quotable one-liners pinging on every page."--The New York Times
