Since You Asked... by Maurine Goo
Holly Kim is in 10th grade and writes for the school newspaper. When she accidentally turns in a column that she edited into a satire instead of the correctly edited copy of the column, she gains her own newspaper column and notoriety in school. She talks a lot about her Korean parents not understanding the American culture and her struggle to fit in and do what she wants. She chronicles her adventures with her three best friends, Carrie, Liz and David and talks a bit about racism and culture and high school culture. The book is cute and high school kids may enjoy it. I got this book free to review from Netgalley.
