Girl meets boy. Boy falls for girl. Girl discovers boy is a runaway K-pop idol in hiding.
Merilee Hart has been doing her best to keep things together since her mother left, her art a welcome escape from her depressing new reality. But things seem to go even more awry the moment her next door neighbor’s enigmatic and mysterious nephew arrives from South Korea. Lee is moody, cocky, and utterly infuriating.
But when Merri’s closest friends betray her and her father crushes her dream of going to art school, Merri finds herself drawn to Lee, who seems to live within even greater shadows than her own. And just when she thought things couldn’t get crazier, Merri’s world is upended when she discovers Lee’s big and bizarre secret…he is none other than a runaway member of the K-pop mega-group Thunder.
This book shouts the cliches in BOLD letters . I mean all the cliches are wrapped together and creatively presented in this YA.This book shouts the cliches in BOLD letters . I mean all the cliches are wrapped together and creatively presented in this YA.It’s got everything from enemies-to-lovers (Lee and Merri’s terrible first meeting and their subsequent awkward interactions are absolutely hilarious. Then even fake a date and ultimately we have them falling for each other.
But that’s not where the story ends , there is some talk about the perks and the cons of being Famous . The glitter and glamour of being a Idol(as said in Korea). Lee Hyung Kim is a fictional character in a book but there are so many idols out there and well , they also serve enjoy life as all of us. Lee was so adorable in the book , totally boyfriend material .
However, I did find that the plot was a bit predictable and some of the writing was a bit heavy-handed. Anyways the book is just quite light-hearted read . You can’t expect much and you shouldn’t as well . I go with 3.5 Stars . In case you are looking for a light YA – RomCom , then this is the one for you .
