Alexa S. - Right after reading your review, I headed straight off to the NYPL website to put a copy on hold! Miss Fortune Cookie sounds FANTASTIC. It sounds precisely like the kind of book I’d love, mostly because it’s about friendship. And the added bonus of an Asian culture as part of it? YES PLEASE.

Lauren Bjorkman - Thanks for the review. It’s a beautiful moment for an author when a reader gets the book. Buy, borrow, steal, whatever! What I mean is when the reader really understands the story.

Magan and Estelle–a signed copy + cool swag = a fun giveaway. My treat. Let me know if you want to do one.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - After I read the things you liked I was going to put this one on hold at the library, but then when I saw you rated it as “borrow it” and now I don’t know! You’ve left me feeling very confused.

Also, whenever I ask you for advice please just tell me what to do.

Lola - I never heard of this boook before, but it sounds like a fun read. And I really like the cover and title, so cute! I also think it’s interesting this book deals with the challenge of choosing a college, as there aren’t many books which include that part. Great review :)!

Meg - Love examinations of friendships, and you’re absolutely right: a story about three best friends is very rare and unique. The idea of the blog is so fun (and one with which we could all relate, I’m sure!), and I love the premise as a whole. Will have to look for this one!
