I have just been to the USA and those American food trucks house the most delicious food, especially the mexican ones. Tacoedelicious. What a perfect setting for a youth fiction novel! Teenage angst, joy, family, relationships, all mixed with salsa and guacamole!
From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story of love, new friendships, and one unique food truck.
"This was a light, adorable read! I loved the food truck aspect as well!! I loved every INCH of this book. It's sweet and funny and full of pranks and pure joy. Clara has such a clear, distinct voice; there's no other character is YA lit like her right now, and I absolutely couldn't get enough.
This book has real depth too - why we hold things at arms length and why caring about this is so hard.
PICK UP THIS BOOK. You won't regret.
Very highly recommended.Goodreads recommendation
Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn't so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dad's business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind? With Maurene Goo's signature warmth and humor, The Way You Make Me Feel is a relatable story of falling in love and finding yourself in the places you'd never thought to look.
“As I stood there surrounded by three people who had the ability to do just that-crack my chest open to all the disappointment and difficulty and grief-I knew I still wanted it. The risk of the bad stuff was sp worth the good stuff. People who would be there for you when you messed up and behaved like a little jerk? They were the good stuff.”
