“Since You Asked”

since you asked        I had a great time at Maurene Goo’s presentation a few weeks ago at the Ontario City Library, Ovitt Branch. She’s the author of Since You Asked, a YA novel in journal form about Holly Kim.

“Fifteen-year-old Holly Kim, the copyeditor for her San Diego high school’s newspaper, accidentally submits a piece ripping everyone to shreds and suddenly finds herself the center of unwanted attention–but when the teacher in charge of the paper asks her to write a regular column, her troubles really start.

“Can she survive homecoming, mean-girl cliques, jocks, a secret admirer, and other high school embarrassments, all while struggling to balance her family’s traditional Korean values?” (Scholastic–publisher)

Maureen and Scholastic gave us a free (signed!) copy of Since You Asked and it is now ready for checkout. I think you’ll like the humor. And if you are looking for a book has a Korean American connection, Goo said that some of the events are based on her personal experience.

Come on over and check it out!
