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.
Great book a little corny
Great book for grades 6-9 (not for in school reading if you’re a teacher or anything). I wouldn’t recommend past that because of the writing. I loved the concept, and found it easier to read since I could relate to things in the book. I’m currently just read this book for a summer assignment, I highly recommend. Great plot twist, and if you’re doing an assignment (like I am) it’s great for the whole “reflect from the lessons learned” type thing. There’s various lessons learned throughout this book, and it’s well thought out.
This is my favorite book. Maurene is an amazing author and has such heartfelt books!! :)
