  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 May #2
    K-pop star Lucky is wrapping up her tour in Hong Kong and getting ready to debut in America, and all she wants is a hamburger. The problem is, she's on total lockdown—K-pop stars are kept on a short leash, and her reputation is pristine—so she's going to have to sneak out of her hotel. It's the same hotel that tabloid photographer Jack is sneaking into on an assignment. When he runs into Lucky, it could be his big break. She doesn't realize he knows who she is, and they hit the town together as she pretends to be just an ordinary girl. But as they explore Hong Kong, Jack starts to regret the photos he's planning on selling, while Lucky finds herself unsure about returning to her regulated life. Jack and Lucky's whirlwind romance is given life by Goo's (The Way You Make Me Feel, 2018) rapid-fire dialogue and enthusiastic embrace of rom-com tropes. A buoyant romance that's as much about self-­discovery as it is about new love. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
