Desi Lee knows how carburetors work. She learned CPR at the age of five. As a high school senior, she has never missed a day of school and has never had a B in her entire life. She's for sure going to Stanford. But she's a disaster in romance, and her botched attempts at flirting have become legendary with her friends.
When the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides it's time to tackle her flirting failures. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has watched obsessively for years ― in which the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. Armed with her “K Drama Rules for True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos. All's fair in love and Korean dramas, right?
But when the fun and games turn to feelings, Desi finds out that real-life love is about way more than just drama. Maurene Goo's I Believe in a Thing Called Love is a fun, heartwarming story of falling in love ― for real.
"Desi finds Luca too good to lose, so she turns to an unlikely mainstay of her home life for help: the Korean dramas her widower father has watched obsessively for years, where star-crossed lovers seem always to win in the end... Desi’s implementation of measures such as 'Be Caught in an Obviously Lopsided Love Triangle,' yields hilarious, at times unintended results, lending this teen rom-com a surprisingly thoughtful conclusion."
