Today on my blog I have the Since You Asked Blog Tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
Maurene Goo was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where she navigated her childhood by practicing extreme bossy Lord-dom over her many cousins. She studied communication at the University of California, San Diego, and received a master's degree in publishing and writing at Emerson College. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and a very old cat. You can visit her online at www.maurenegoo.com
A humorous, debut novel about a Korean-American teenager who accidentally lands her own column in her high school newspaper, and proceeds to rant her way through the school year while struggling to reconcile the traditional Korean values of her parents with contemporary American culture.
This is one of those books that was just ok for me. It didn’t blow me away but I did like it. The pace is good and I think a lot of teenagers can relate to the story line.
I liked Holly and her best friends and if I was in high school I could totally see myself hanging out with her. We are both sarcastic and like her I just didn’t enjoy high school. But there is where we stop in being a like. At times though I did have issues connecting to her and for me that is a big deal. I need to connect to the characters or story line for it to blow mind away. But with that said this book does deal with a lot of things teenagers are going through in high school and for that reason I will be passing on my book to my cousin who is around the same age and dealing with a lot of what Holly is going through.
I did enjoy Maurene’s writing and plan to read more from her in the future. I hope you give this book a chance cause even though it wasn’t my favorite I still did enjoy it. 3/5 Bloody Fangs
