I decided to be bold and daring and read something I was just in the mood for and not worry about its release date. As soon as I got my request approved on Edelweiss for MY SUMMER OF LOVE AND MISFORTUNE, I knew I’d enjoy it if I read it. This book has A LOT of writing craft flaws, but honestly, the story was so fun and hilarious that I still enjoyed the book overall. It’s about Iris Weijun Wang, a Chinese American teen who’s just spent too much money on her parents’ credit card and failed senior year of high school. In an effort to get her to change her behavior, her parents send her to live with newly discovered family in Beijing, where she discovers her culture, more drama, and romance (of course). There are definitely a lot of problems with how this book was written that I’ll elaborate on in a review posted closer to the release date, but I’d still recommend putting this book on your radars because it’s just so fun.
This is my first book by Deb Caletti. None of her other books have interested me, to be honest, even though she’s been around for a really long time, but this one had me intrigued by the synopsis, which talked about a teen girl discovering the pitfalls of beauty and desire through a summer spent with her movie star mother and her dangerous new boyfriend. As I’m writing this post, I’m about 10% in and can say I am definitely intrigued and really want to know what happens. This seems like a really unique YA thriller and I’m excited to find out how it all ends up.
