YA romance novel that s a good read Can t wait to read of Abigail s work in the future. I went in 96 Till this day, best summer of my life This book triggered some memories I had forgotten this was before social media and not everyone had cell phones or email, so it was difficult to keep in touch with people , and what it did was rekindle some conversations with friends I hadn t talked to in decades The story starts off a little slow, but necessary for character development But once she gets to Taipei, the ball starts rolling and it doesn t stop I forced myself to only get through 1 2 chapters a day, but a friend of mine bought it on my recommendation and got through it in less than a weekend We literally devoured it Kudos to the writer I felt like she was writing about someone I knew on the trip, each character could have passed for someone I was friends with, or someone that I had met The counselors, side characters, etc Regardless if you had gone to Love Boat or not, it is a very nice coming of age book, it comes from a character that grew up with a Tiger mom The generational and cultural divide that children of immigrants all live through. I read this book in one sitting and it s 414 pages so that s saying something I totally got lost in the world the author created and was sad when it ended.Loveboat is like summer camp and boarding school combined and if you can imagine all the shenanigans that go on between those two things, then you can see why I kept flipping pages but the book is so much than that For those of us not raised in an Asian household, we get a sneak peek into the pressures, expectations, and sacrifices that are made within these familiesall done through love, but oh boy It makes for rich family dynamics that Hing Wen makes specific to the characters but you can imagine it playing out behind the closed doors of many houses.I adored the characters SO much I only wish I would have been able to see the drawings that one character draws can t say who b c that would ruin it because they sounded absolutely beautiful I would love to see this as a movie and the author mentioned Hollywood in the acknowledgements, so I m hoping that happens.Highly recommend
