The YA Room is a Melbourne-based Young Adult book club! We meet once a month to discuss our Book of the Month, as well as host a variety of other special events. The YA Room was co-created at the beginning of 2017 by Sarah Robinson-Hatch and Alexandra Panzarino, and it’s run by Sarah and co-hosts Bianca Breen and Shaun Goodhue.
Book of the Month
Frank Li is a high school senior living in Southern California. Frank’s parents emigrated from Korea, and have pretty much one big rule for Frank – he must only date Korean girls.
But he’s got strong feelings for a girl in his class, Brit – and she’s not Korean. His friend Joy Song is in the same boat and knows her parents will never accept her Chinese American boyfriend, so they make a pact: they’ll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom.
Frank thinks fake-dating is the perfect plan, but it leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love – or himself – at all.
Tuesday 12 November, 6.30 – 8pm, Readings State Library
