American Panda, by Gloria Chao


There was no right or wrong here. No morality. Just two roads, leading in different directions but both ending in heartbreak. Life was, as I was finding out, Choose Your Own Adventure with most of the fun stripped away.
Gloria Chao, American Panda

This book was funny and adorable. I loved it!

Mei was a really great main character. She was amazing. I think I might be a little in love with Darren, he just seemed so kind and obviously loved Mei very much. Their romance is cute moment after cute moment and just so adorable.

The book isn’t only about the romance. It focuses a lot on Mei’s family and their relationships, which I really liked about the book. The author did an amazing job with this book making it light and fun but, also giving it some depth.

This was an own voices story with Asian representation and it was totally adorable and amazing. Definitely get this on your shelf ASAP!
