Flip the Script

In this simmering, joyous novel, I’ll Be the One author Lyla Lee delivers a tender romance set between two brave teens who decide that when the script isn’t working, it’s time to rewrite it themselves.

The first rule of watching K-dramas: Never fall in love with the second lead.

As an avid watcher of K-dramas, Hana knows all the tropes to avoid when she finally lands a starring role in a buzzy new drama. And she can totally handle her fake co-star boyfriend, heartthrob Bryan Yoon, who might be falling in love with her. After all, she promised the TV producers a contract romance, and that’s all they’re going to get from her.

But when showrunners bring on a new lead actress to challenge Hana’s role as main love interest—and worse, it’s someone Hana knows all too well—can Hana fight for her position on the show, while falling for her on-screen rival in real life?


The Mindy Kim Series

Fresh off the Boat meets Junie B. Jones in this adorable chapter book series following Mindy Kim, a young Asian American girl.

Mindy Kim just wants three things:
1. A puppy!
2. To fit in at her new school
3. For her dad to be happy again

However, getting all three of the things on her list is a lot trickier than she thought it would be. Between classmates making fun of her seaweed snacks and celebrating the Lunar New Year without her mom, Mindy is faced with more challenges than she bargained for. With the help of her family and friends, Mindy can find the courage make her goals a reality, and even pursue new ideas like running for class president, visiting Korea, a pizza eating competition, and learning to swim—not to mention welcoming a new person into her family!
