About the Book"Two entrepreneurial Korean-American teens butt heads-and fall in love-while running competing Korean beauty businesses at their high school"--
Book SynopsisFrankly in Love meets Shark Tank in this feel-good romantic comedy about two entrepreneurial Korean American teens who butt heads--and maybe fall in love--while running competing Korean beauty businesses at their high school. There's nothing Valerie Kwon loves more than making a good sale. Together with her cousin Charlie, they run V&C K-BEAUTY, their school's most successful student-run enterprise. With each sale, Valerie gets closer to taking her beloved and adventurous halmeoni to her dream city, Paris. Enter the new kid in class, Wes Jung, who is determined to pursue music after graduation despite his parents' major disapproval. When his classmates clamor to buy the K-pop branded beauty products his mom gave him to "make new friends," he sees an opportunity--one that may be the key to help him pay for the music school tuition he knows his parents won't cover... What he doesn't realize, though, is that he is now V&C K-BEAUTY's biggest competitor. Stakes are high as Valerie and Wes try to outsell each other, make the most money, and take the throne for the best business in school--all while trying to resist the undeniable spark that's crackling between them. From hiring spies to all-or-nothing bets, the competition is much more than either of them bargained for. But one thing is clear: only one Korean business can come out on top.
"An engaging, fast-paced romance between two teens longing for acceptance." --Kirkus Reviews "A great romance that depicts Asian American and international identities."--School Library Journal "Page-turning fun...Readers who like their romances on the schemy side will be in for a treat."--Booklist
