High school. So funny I forgot to laugh.

A humorous, debut novel about a Korean-American teenager who accidentally lands her own column in her high school newspaper, and proceeds to rant her way through the school year while struggling to reconcile the traditional Korean values of her parents with contemporary American culture.
Today I'm very glad to be given a chance to shine a spotlight on a wonderful debut that definitely relates to myself. I, like the protagonist, have to somehow balance my Chinese heritage with my very Canadian upbringing. Which is definitely not easy. I have to pick up Since You Asked ASAP! Read on for a super awesome giveaway below!
