(EBOOK READ) Frankly in Love
Fake dating if you re not gonna be cute about it This book was such a freaking let down I can t I JUST CAN TI The Revolt Of The Miniature Mutants Sixth Grade Alien hated it so much There are gonna be unmarked spoilers guys so read this at your own discretion because I just can t talk about this properly without revealing spoilersOmg the writing THE WRITING WAS AWFULDid the author Yoon want to be grandilouent and overly verbose Or dide want to be painfully prosaic BECAUSE BOTH STYLES WERE PRESENT AND OMG DID I HATE THEM SO MUCH And can we just LOL at the amount of issues this book tried to stuff into it racism shootings death illness cheating coming out TOO MANY THINGS COVERED UTTERLY INEFFECTUALLYLike yay let s talk about racism and identity Fab Explore the ingrained racism of not allowing your children to fully integrate into a different society and explore the reasoning as to why Frank s parents were so racist And also explore the racist attitudes of Americans who don t Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass have to identify themselves as European American versus Frank s Korean American or African American etc BUT DO NOT THEN MAKE YOUR MAIN CHARACTER ie Frank BE A PREJUDICED TOSSER TOO Eg in this scene in chapter 12 Frank is on the phone to girlfriend Brit and sheears The Gathering going on in the background and Le Gratin des champignons: Portraits mycologiques he explains what it is toer when some Korean American families meet up to Applied Mycology and Biotechnology Agriculture and Food Production have food and chats etc And thene En finir avec la candidose has this thought The roomful of Limbos suddenly becomes the most precious of life s achievements children who will never want for anything who speak native English who will go to the best schools in the world and neverave to run an office furniture rental service like Joy s parents a dry cleaner Ella s a beauty supply Andrew s a tourist gift shop John s or a grocery store mineSo if I interpreted this correctly what Frank was saying that Parcours mythologique dans les jardins de Versailles he andis fellow Korean American friends will never The Quest for Valhalla (Order of the Black Sun have to work in those types of jobs And the message I got fromim as a character and the book is as if those types of jobs are somehow less than Menial etc And I m sorry but book YOU NEED TO TOSS OFF As I said we already know Frank s parents are racist and laden with prejudice But then Frank 21st Century New Openings himself was as prejudiced for the disparaging messagese gave off about the careers that all of those parents The Light is the Darkness had Like what is so very wrong with any of these jobs They re allugely respectable I get the whole idea of the demanding overly zealous parent wanting the child to be a doctor or similar because of their prejudiced ideas of what success means But Frank displayed an eually problematic mindset in Malin Kundang howe just flippantly dismissed the work of Vectors his parents and the other Korean Americans Ande was supposed to be from the enlightened generationBOOK YOU NEED TO MAKE MORE SENSE PLEASE DO NOT TEAR DOWN CAREERS COS YOU THINK THEY ARE NOT GLAMOROUS OR WHATEVER BS But back to the main racism issue of the book So Frank s parents are racist because they only want Good to Go: The Life and times of a Decorated Member of the U.S. Navy's Elite Seal Team Two him to date and ultimately marry a nice Korean girl Ergo Frank needs to fake dateis Korean American friend Joy so that Navy SEAL Justice Covert Cowboys Inc he can really date European American BritBut like all the book does is state that there is racism Frank ultimately doesn t challenge this He gives in to these problematic beliefs and treats Brit abominably by not being truthful wither LIKE WHAT IS THE POINT OF FRANK WOULD SOMEONE TELL ME PLEASEAnd as for Frank s European American girlfriend BritShe was so empty as a character Entirely vacant Lacking in any sort of substance Her love for Frank was baffling Because Officer and a Gentleman he permanently kepter entirely at a distance There was a distinct lack of connection He legit only liked The Necromancer's Dilemma her cos she s pretty SO WHY WOULD SHE SUDDENLY BE ALL OH I LOVE YOU FRANKPoor idiotic and painfully underdeveloped character And Joy I don t get Joy AT ALL

READ Frankly in LoveFrankly Frank Li is a bit of a dickWe all know this book is going to be a bestseller The cover is great the story is promising the Pour l'harmonisation orthographique des dictionnaires hype is real But if Iad to describe this book in one word Weird So so weirdI m obviously not Korean so I can t speak for the realistic portrayal of growing up as a second generation Korean teenager in the US It felt real enough though Frank and Des femmes qui tombent his Korean American friends all struggle with theuge gap between the expectations of their parents and the American reality they live in Frank personally doesn t understand Illustrated Pocket Guide to Clinical Medicine his parents at all Heates their narrow mindedness and their racist attitudes towards other races He Petit manuel pour comprendre le Syndrome de Tachycardie Orthostatique Posturale hates that they would never accept a girlfriend that is anything but Korean ande Kiss That Frog hates that they disownedis older sister because she dared to date a Black guy What was wonderfully done though is that Frank s understanding of The Seneca Scourge his parents their reasons and their past begins to grow He grows closer to them as they open up about their own thoughts and feelings I even almost shed a tear at the end of the bookPlotwise David Yoon didn t do anything wrong The romance was foreseeable but cute and just when I started to wonder why this book was so long the story took a surprising turn and got even betterSowhat s the problem Well Frank is I don t likeim I wanted to give Caleo Leech him the benefit of the doubt when at the beginning of the booke and Vibrational Medicine The his best friend talk about what their perfect girlfriend would be like and all theyave to say is funny and kind I mean nice try but we all know teenagers and especially teenage boys a Kade (Alien Adoption Agency horny and judgemental and a conversation like this would at least mention a boob or two but still the author wanted to set an example He just didn t follow through with it Because turns out Frank Li is aorny teenager who can t Scandalous Acts 7 hideis sexism His best friend The Children Money Can Buy has a twin sister called Evon Frank describeser as s smoking The Burning Girls hot twin sister Evon Not just one Not twice No Evon is s smokingot twin sister throughout the entire novel and I wanted to throw the book across the room every single time I The Outlandish Companion (Revised and Updated): Companion to Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn had to read that What I don t understand about this book isow the side characters feel so real and likeable while Frank is such a weird and unrelatable guy He Transgalactic Antics Carrie Hatchett Space Adventurer has so many uirky and weird mannerisms that I couldn t get over and I think itas mostly to do with the author trying to write a teenager that is both super nerdy but super cool and funny and smart at the same time David Yoon tried to channel the typical awkward nerd boy that we know from John Green and any other male YA contemporary writer And Outmove (Inner Movement, he failed Mostly because Frank Li says stupid things like You scared the poop out of my butthole There s also the moment where instead of shaking each other sands Frank and a new acuaintance vigorously masturbate the gap between them WHY Then the are the painful incidents of people laughing Hahahahaahehehehahahaha Puhahahahahaha and Geehahahahakekekekekek Again WHY It gets even better though because Frank is so cool and nerdy that e says fartphones instead of smartphones Do with that what you willAnother aspect that bothered me and although a person s sexuality shouldn t be turned into a plot twist but ey writers seem to like that kind of thing so
here s a spoiler alert was the totally failed attempt to gives a spoiler alert was the totally failed attempt to give s best friend a backstory He just waited for over 400 pages to follow through with it and even then didn t give it a lot of attention It Wildflower An Extraordinary Life and Untimely Death in Africa honestly felt like an afterthought to get at least some sexual diversity into a YA novel that features not a single ueer character apart from the closeted gay kid stereotypeI m sure this novel will prompt a cute little film adaption and I monestly looking forward to seeing it Still it could easily become one of those the film is better than the book cases Let s wait and seeFind of my books on Instagram YOU GUYS THIS BOOKIt s my life except the fake dating I mean every ethnic The Elixir and the Stone houseold can relate to the whole dating within your race nonsense and juggling your culture alongside the society you actually grew up in Our parents man Confusedcom This book was okay Not a new favorite but I enjoyed the time I spent reading itTW racism shootings cheating cancer death of a loved one 3 5 starsOverall of this book is okay It s really entertaining and easy for you to enjoy laugh and cry maybe just a little because it s not that sad while reading it but man my one and only biggest problem with this book is that I DON T LIKE FRANK
