If you enjoyed The Proposal, then you’ll love A Pho Love Story.
“It was cute and it made me smile, what more do you need? A Romeo and Juliet inspired love story, Bao and Linh are the children of rival Vietnamese restaurant owners. They begin to form a friendship that leads to romance and they begin digging into their family's histories to find out how deep the rivalry goes only to uncover some deeply held secrets. Parallel to Linh and Bao's love story, we also have the typical coming-of-age where our main characters figure out their passions and fight with parents to make dreams a reality. I really like that Le paired the Mai's more strict approach to Linh's painting with the Nguyen's also strict but more welcoming attitude with Bao's writing. Le challenges the stereotypes and shows that there are many types of parents in Asian, and specifically Vietnamese, cultures. The audiobook was fantastic. Ryan Do & Vyvy Nguyen did a great job voicing Bao and Linh and I especially liked hearing the Vietnamese spoken and Le's descriptions of how certain words should be. I would recommend this YA romance to fans of the genre but also any adult romance fans that need that extra level of cuteness and coming-of-age.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
