Happy Book Birthday to DATING MAKES PERFECT!

Happy Book Birthday to DATING MAKES PERFECT, an absolutely delightful #OwnVoices Thai-American rom-com from NY Times bestselling author Pintip Dunn!

The Tech sisters don’t date in high school. Not because they’re not asked. Not because they’re not interested. Not even because no one can pronounce their long, Thai last name–hence the shortened, awkward moniker. But simply because they’re not allowed.

Until now.

In a move that other Asian American girls know all too well, six months after the older Tech twins got to college, their parents asked, “Why aren’t you engaged yet?” The sisters retaliated by vowing that they won’t marry for ten (maybe even twenty!) years, not until they’ve had lots of the dating practice that they didn’t get in high school.

In a shocking war on the status quo, her parents now insist that their youngest daughter, Orrawin (aka “Winnie”), must practice fake dating in high school. Under their watchful eyes, of course–and organized based on their favorite rom-coms. ‘Cause that won’t end in disaster.

The first candidate? The son of their longtime friends, Mat Songsomboon–arrogant, infuriating, and way too good-looking. Winnie’s known him since they were toddlers throwing sticky rice balls at each other. And her parents love him.

If only he weren’t her sworn enemy.
