"Ji-su's traditional South Korean parents are concerned by what they see as her lack of attention to her schoolwork and her future. Working with Seoul's premiere matchmaker to find the right boyfriend is one step toward ensuring Ji-su's success, and going on the recommended dates is Ji-su's compromise to please her parents while finding space to figure out her own dreams. But when she flubs a test then skips out on a date to spend time with friends, her fed-up parents shock her by shipping her off to a private school in San Francisco. Where she'll have the opportunity to shine academically--and be set up on more dates!"-- Provided by publisher.

Melissa de la Cruz strikes again with another charming story about a young girl looking for love. Jisu, a South Korean girl is faced with a lot of pressure to get into college, and to find a stable boyfriend on top of that. And with subpar grades and an inability to stand out in her school of outstanding students with countless extracurriculars all vying to get into Ivy Leagues and Seoul National University, Jisu’s controlling parents decide to ship her overseas in her senior year to good ol’ San Francisco, CA. A sweet tale of breaking free and finding your true self, Jisu takes us on an adventure across the world where she discovers a sense of freedom and many new friends. It’s a great book that resonates with students feeling the anxiety and pressures of getting into college, and is highlighted with amusing stories of finding the “perfect one” in a sea of high-achieving suitors.
