Summary, etc.:
High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo. His term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents' traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance, 'Date Korean,' which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful, and white.

    Frank Li witnessed his older sister be perfect: she got into Harvard, then Harvard Law, then graduated into an enviably lucrative career. For their Korean immigrant parents, Hanna could do no wrong—until she did: She fell in love with a non-Korean . . . and disappeared from the family. Now that Frank is, well, frankly in love with another non-Korean, he's gonna avoid getting disowned with the help of family friend Joy Song—who's also hiding a non-Korean sweetheart. When their ruse turns real, true love proves more complicated than ever. Undoubtedly cast for his shared Korean heritage, Atlanta-born Korean American actor Lee is, for most of the 10 hours, an energetically convincing cipher for Frank and his family and friends. Ancestry, however, most definitely doesn't guarantee fluency. Yoon chooses not to translate an extensive heated argument, conducted (naturally) in their native Korean, between Frank's and Joy's fathers; on the page, Yoon uses only hangul (Korean characters) to record their angry exchange. Lee's halting recitation, alas, reveals his uncomfortable literacy, a regrettable disappointment to listeners expecting and deserving authenticity. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
