ARC DNF - The Way You Make Me Feel

From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story of love, new friendships, and one unique food truck.

Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn't so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dad’s business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind? 

With Maurene Goo's signature warmth and humor, The Way You Make Me Feel is a relatable story of falling in love and finding yourself in the places you’d never thought to look.

DNF Mini Breakdown

ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review

DNF - 10%

Sorry, Clara is too much of a brat to me and I just couldn't like her character. I'm one of those people that has to like the character in order to like the book. The prom scene just did me in, it was too much, too... I don't even have words, I just thought it was stupid. I wish we could've followed Rose as I actually liked her a lot and would've kept reading if we had been following her. 

As always, I don't star DNFs because I feel that's wrong because I didn't finish the book. Though if I had to rate it... you can guess what I'd chose.
