The competition

Dark Matter Zine and Penguin Random House Australia are pleased to be giving away 3 copies of Frankly In Love to lucky readers.

Frankly In Love“Yoon never settles for stereotypes, instead giving his well-defined characters a diversity of experience, identity, sexuality, and ambition. Told in youthful-sounding prose, Frank’s journey reaches beyond Korean-American identity and touches on the common experiences of many children of immigrants, including negotiating language barriers, tradition, and other aspects of what it means to be a “hyphenated” American.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Spectacular debut. . . Yoon’s light hand with dialogue and deft use of illustrative anecdotes produce a story that illuminates weighty issues by putting a compassionate human face on struggles both universal and particular to certain identities. . . A deeply moving account of love in its many forms.”– Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“I loved, loved, LOVED this book, which miraculously manages to be a love story, a treatise on racism, a peek into adolescence, and a welcome to Korean-American culture, all at once. Frankly, Frank Li is a character you need to meet.” – Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light

“I fell fast for David Yoon’s masterful debut that’s big-hearted, honest, hilarious, and achingly romantic. I smiled, I laughed, I cried, and I closed this book wiser. Get ready to fall in love with Frank, world!” – Adam Silvera, New York Times bestselling author of They Both Die at The End

“Frankly in Love shines with an incredible voice and a searing, honest, and deeply human story about what it means to love someone. David Yoon isn’t afraid to confront every angle, both the beautiful and the ugly, but he tackles it all with great care. This is a classic in the making.” – Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Warcross

ABOUT THE AUTHOR David Yoon is a writer and designer who created the illustrations for the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Everything, Everything. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, novelist Nicola Yoon, and their energetic daughter. Frankly in Love is his first novel.
