12 Days of YA Book Recommendations

 On the fifth day of YA book recommendations, I’m recommending The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo!

The Way You Make Me Feel by Maureen Goo

Maurene Goo’s The Way You Make Me Feel is a delightful novel full of friendship, family, diverse characters, growing up, and good food. Visiting LA will be added to your bucket-list after you read this love letter to the city. And of course you’ll be wishing you could eat at the KoBra food truck in real life! This sizzling novel is a summer must-read and perfect for fans of female friendships, soft boys, “unlikable” protagonists, and coming of age stories. See my aesthetic

Find the book: Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Book Depository

    I remember adoring the dad and the love interest in this one. I think Goo always writes the dads really well in her books.
