About this deal

this book was just so cute and fun that i am willing to ignore all flaws and plotholes because this book was written for me. OF COURSE HE HAS AN ENGLISH ACCENT, LOOKS LIKE LITERAL ART AND HE’S SMART- SMART ENOUGH TO WIN JEOPARDY SMART😩! As the two of them grow closer, Alice also has to come to terms with what she’s willing to do to stay at this school.

i am very in love with henry li, he is such a sweetheart, is a literal gentleman and is pure perfection. Alice was cute I mean she was funny and everything but idk she kept blaming Henry for being born in a rich family like? i like how he has strict parents but they ended up apologizing and being better 💌💌💌💌 yay for parent character development in asian fiction. Liang references a few characters who might have further knowledge of this phenomenon, but it's never explored further than a knowing look or vague comment. my heart hurt so bad for her, especially when she starts really thinking about the “you’re still just a kid” comment from mr chen.I wish Henry harbored mutual resentment for Alice rather than immediately being drawn to her — it feels dismissive of her academic capabilities and removes tension from the relationship. I just really felt Alice’s character and her feelings, the such strong wanting and how this drives her character. even the author's deep affection and admiration for her parents shine through in this book, evident in the unwavering dedication and heartfelt portrayal. But I didn't really like the execution and I felt like the characterization and story-telling felt a little. i love the way she integrates asian culture without it being stereotypical ughh i just love love love her.

Of course, even as the “study machine” perfect child, she made some questionable decisions that almost landed herself in PRISON🤑💅✨✨.

I've been on a roll lately, I finished three books and wrote three reviews in the span of two days (not counting when I started the books, just when I finished them) and I'm so proud of myself because I am FINALLY out of my horrid reading slump. unfortunately, that was not the case 😭 maybe i just expected too much, maybe this just wasn't for me, but either way, i was disappointed.

Alice wants so badly to be successful, to be something more, and this dream still applies to her even after they’ve left America. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. i 100% understood her burning desire for extremely high grades, and i related to a lot of her experiences and thoughts. Alice never really seemed too much into Henry at all, so the random flirty scenes didn’t really do much for me.Chanel was also a great character, she was so nice and friendly and seems like she would make a great friend, but none of these characters are real which pains me to type out. this book is not a literary masterpiece by any means but it means sm to me that i'm giving it 6 stars. Her parents work difficult jobs with long hours to provide for her, and this spurs her into wanting to be able to do something with the education and opportunities that come with it. Kidnapping, Injury, Classism, Mentions of Child Pornography, Cheating, Crimes, Panic Attacks, Stalking, Infidelity, Racism, Swearing, Abuse, Bullying, etc.
