“The art-centric romance that develops between Desi and Luca is rewarding to follow, as are their parental relationships, particularly that between Desi and her widowed Appa. Goo (Since You Asked…) simultaneously honors and deconstructs romantic tropes, both in general and specific to K dramas, and does so using a wonderfully diverse cast.” – Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

“Plot-driven as the K dramas Goo’s protagonist seeks to emulate, her funny, engaging narrative also delivers powerful messages of inclusion and acceptance.” – Kirkus, Starred Review 

“Goo has written, in my opinion, one of the greatest YA romantic comedies to date. It’s expertly crafted and the very definition of unputdownable. The premise, the characters, the relationships, the voice: everything about this book simply works in the most satisfying way possible. I Believe in a Thing Called Love is the perfect story to curl up with and revel in. It’s a gift to us all.” – B&N Teen blog

“In the tradition of best-laid plans, Desi’s goes painfully awry in ways that elevate the story above the level of fluffy, cross-cultural rom-com. Friends and family are well crafted to inspire discussions about the comfort and complications they afford . . . Readers who crave believability with their fun and wit will be satisfied with the way the plan works out.” — VOYA

“This book extends beyond a typical romance story, as it also deals with parent/teen relationships, grief, and the stress of college admission… A humorous romantic comedy with a Korean drama twist that should be on all YA romance shelves. Purchase where Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han are popular.” – School Library Journal
