A teen escapes to a boarding school abroad and falls for a Korean pop star in this fun and fresh romantic novel in the vein of Anna and the French Kiss.
Grace Wilde is running—from the multi-million dollar mansion her record producer father bought, the famous older brother who’s topped the country music charts five years in a row, and the mother who blames her for her brother’s breakdown. Grace escapes to the farthest place from home she can think of, a boarding school in Korea, hoping for a fresh start.
She wants nothing to do with music, but when her roommate Sophie’s twin brother Jason turns out to be the newest Korean pop music superstar, Grace is thrust back into the world of fame. She can’t stand Jason, whose celebrity status is only outmatched by his oversized ego, but they form a tenuous alliance for the sake of her friendship with Sophie. As the months go by and Grace adjusts to her new life in Korea, even she can’t deny the sparks flying between her and the KPOP idol.
Soon, Grace realizes that her feelings for Jason threaten her promise to herself that she’ll leave behind the music industry that destroyed her family. But can Grace ignore her attraction to Jason and her undeniable pull of the music she was born to write? Sweet, fun, and romantic, this young adult novel explores what it means to experience first love and discover who you really are in the process
Why I Want To Read This Book..
Based on the synopsis I thought this book sounded really good. Based on the title, it’s eh. You would think this book is about some girl or guy having a good relationship with someone else and then they break up. Then later they are friends again or something.
But it’s really about girl and a KPop guy! Now if you didn’t know I am asian (Chinese exactly) and the fact that someone Korean in this book just gets me excited. I think it’s very rare that an author specifies that a character is a different race. (This rant is going to be saved for later) I always get excited when a character in a book is asian because I can relate (ethnically) to that person. I guess it’s me and I haven’t read any books from this author. Well that just a reason why I want to read this book. Also because it has something to do with music!
