A Pho Love Story: 04/10/21
A Pho Love Story by Loan Le is a YA romance set around competing Vietnamese restaurants. Bao and Linh met when they were little but they've been forbidden from talking since then. Their high school newspaper, though, brings them together on a project.
Bao who claims to be proud of his mediocrity finds a love of writing. Linh loses herself in her art. Their friendship grows and blossoms into more over the course of their newspaper assignments. As they are the children of restaurant owners, they've been given a restaurant review column. Bao writes and Linh edits and illustrates.
There's understandably a lot of emphasis on food, cooking, and running a restaurant. Don't read while hungry. It's a shame the book doesn't include any recipes.
