Waiting on Wednesday #600

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

(and each other) BY LIVIA BLACKBURNE

Goodreads Description:

You’ve Got Mail gets a YA twist in this rom-com that spotlights the power of activism and community organizing in the face of gentrification.

Clementine Chan believes in the power of the written word. Under the pseudonym Hibiscus, she runs a popular blog reviewing tea shops and discussing larger issues within her Chinatown community. She has a loyal, kind following, save for this one sour grape named BobaBoy888.

Danny Mok is allergic to change, and the gentrification seeping into Chinatown breaks his heart. He channels his frustration into his internet alter ego, BobaBoy888, bickering with local blogger Hibiscus over all things Chinatown and tea.

When a major corporation reveals plans that threaten to shut down the Mok’s beloved tea shop, Clementine and Danny find themselves working together in real life to save this community they both love. But as they fall hard for this cause—and each other—they have no clue that their online personas have been fighting for years.

When the truth comes to light, can Danny and Clementine still find their happily-ever-after?

Format: 336 pages, Hardcover
Expected Publication: July 18, 2023 by Quill Tree Books
Pre-Order: Blackwells and Amazon

Normally this would not really be a book for me, as I do not read a lot of contemporary books. Buut. This one is written by Livia Blackburne :) I'm a bit behind on her books, but have been a fan of her for years now. <3 And so of course I'm going to give this one a try too :) And I think it sounds and looks adorable.
What are you waiting for on this beloved Wednesday?
