Take your guitar and… breathe! (12)


Stiti momentul ala in care esti euforica pentru ca ti-ai cumparat o carte pe care o vroiai de mult, si intrii pe GoodReads, doar ca sa iti actualizezi statusul la o carte pe care o citesti, dar iti apare in fata o carte cu o vioara pe coperta? Probabil ca il stiti, dar nu stiu daca stiti si cum e sa apesi pe disperata pe titlu, entuziasmata ca ai mai gasit o carte cu o violonista si ca OMG trebuie sa o citesti! Asta mi s-a intamplat ieri. Am gasit o carte pe care trebuie neaparat sa o am si sa o citesc. NEAPARAT! ‘Good Enough’ de Paula Yoo.

good enough

How to make your Korean parents happy:

1. Get a perfect score on the SATs.
2. Get into HarvardYalePrinceton.
3. Don’t talk to boys.*

Patti’s parents expect nothing less than the best from their Korean-American daughter. Everything she does affects her chances of getting into an Ivy League school. So winning assistant concertmaster in her All-State violin competition and earning less than 2300 on her SATs is simply not good enough.

But Patti’s discovering that there’s more to life than the Ivy League. To start with, there’s Cute Trumpet Guy. He’s funny, he’s talented, and he looks exactly like the lead singer of Patti’s favorite band. Then, of course, there’s her love of the violin. Not to mention cool rock concerts. And anyway, what if Patti doesn’t want to go to HarvardYalePrincetonafter all?

Paula Yoo scores big in her hilarious debut novel about an overachiever who longs to fit in and strives to stand out. The pressure is on!

*Boys will distract you from your studies.

Am o singura rectificare. Baietii de distrag de la studiu in momentul in care ii lasi sa o faca, dar nu cred ca e cazul, daca te pregatesti sa intrii la HarvardYalePrinceton.

Cred ca imi va placea foarte mult, pentru ca are o poveste diferita de cele pe care le-am citit pana acum.

Voua v-ar placea sa o cititi?
