A funny young adult novel about a Korean-American girl who uses K-Drama techniques to snag the boyfriend of her dreams.

Desi Lee knows how carburetors work. She learned CPR at the age of five. As a high school senior, she has never missed a day of school and never had a B. But in her charmed school life, there's one thing missing—she’s never had a boyfriend. In fact, she’s a known disaster in romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation magnet. When the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides it's time to tackle her flirting failures. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has watched obsessively for years—in which the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. Armed with her “K Drama Rules for True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos. All's fair in love and Korean dramas, right? But when the fun and games turn to feelings, Desi finds out that real-life love is about way more than just drama. Maurene Goo's I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE is a fun, heartwarming story of falling in love—for real.

THIS BOOK! OMG! I adored it!! I was drawn to this book because of the K-Dramas, I have a few friends who are so obsessed with them! I have steered clear of K-Dramas with the fear that I would only add to my obsession filled life. After reading this book, I felt like I was missing out on something fabulous!! So I decided to watch one, and picked Pride and Prejudice on DRAMAFEVER and I am HOOKED!! OMG!! My KDrama friends told me about it years ago and I was so scared to watch it, with good reason, but I am so glad I did!!  I am only on episode 3 and am thrilled to know there are 21 EPISODES!! 21!!  

OK, so back to the book I LOVED IT!! Desi is the best protagonist! She is super fun, super smart and super clueless when it comes to love! We were all Desi at some point in our adolescence, I know I was! I loved her so much and I laughed and cried and loved with this book, it was so wonderful!
