Publication Date: May 7, 2019
10 00 p.m.: Lucky is the biggest K-pop star on the scene, and she’s just performed her hit song “Heartbeat” in Hong Kong to thousands of adoring fans. She’s about to debut on The Tonight Show in America, hopefully a breakout performance for her career. But right now? She’s in her fancy hotel, trying to fall asleep but dying for a hamburger.
11 00 p.m.: Jack is sneaking into a fancy hotel, on assignment for his tabloid job that he keeps secret from his parents. On his way out of the hotel, he runs into a girl wearing slippers, a girl who is single-mindedly determined to find a hamburger. She looks kind of familiar. She’s very cute. He’s maybe curious.
12:00 a.m.: Nothing will ever be the same.
With her trademark humor and voice, Maurene Goo delivers a sparkling story of taking a chance on love–and finding yourself along the way.
I just saw the words K-pop star and that was it. I was sold. This book will absolutely be pre-ordered and I will shell out the money for a hardcover without a second thought.
Reading the rest of the synopsis (aka trying my best not to let the mention of K-pop make me too impulsive), and I’m still sold. May needs to hurry on up and arrive because I need this book asap.
