I disliked Henri, fell in love with Corinne, and laughed my ass off because of Ming and how funny he was. Which we thought would make us happy, or fulfill us, but end up having origins that don’t belong to us. He's pretty smart, humorous, and caring, but isn't very considerate of his actions until the shit backfires on him and then he apologizes.

I also think a lot of my issues came from the fact that a lot of what I was being told by the author didn’t match what I was being shown. I especially enjoyed the way Henri's ambition was described as well and contrasted to Corrinne and her mother. I can see that Henri is actually a people person though, so seeing him referring his actual skills as a “hustle” really puzzles me. However, I really appreciated that with something that big, it wasn’t just brushed aside or neatly taken care of.Unfortunately, his inner monologue of thinking his charms as a “hustle” sours things a bit for me as it makes his character seems insincere. It has two of my favorite elements: senior year setting and laid back/uptight couple dynamics so it does sounds like it’s going to be a new favorite of mine.

In Philippe’s funny debut, 16-year-old black French-Canadian Norris Kaplan must navigate life and love in Austin, Tex.

I can’t say anything about the representation, but I can say this book gets the senior year correctly.Near the end of the book, there's a scene where Henri and his girlfriend are about to have sex for the first time but Henri (for reasons I won't spoil) isn't in the mood.

He’s first-generation American, the son of hard-working Haitian immigrants; he’s a good student at the prestigious FATE Academy, where he’s well-liked; and he runs a dog-walking business for upscale New Yorkers.My name is Sam and I blog about all things bookish, as well as life updates on my adventures across Canada.

Corrine then essentially blackmails Henri into helping her get a social life (to look good on college applications) in exchange for keeping quiet about his fake company. Henri was only two shades away from what Rita Mae Brown says we need to be happy Happiness is pretty simple: someone to love, something to do, something to look forward to. Considering his family’s lower economic status and the limited job opportunities for high schoolers, I understand his reasoning behind this method of circumventing his disadvantages. Henry runs his own dog walking business and he's discovered people are more likely to trust you with their fur baby when you have a professional company behind you.I think it’s definitely one that can find its audience if you enjoy a rom-com that explores some more serious themes, but it just was not for me. Henri agrees and finds himself growing to like Corrine but he can't help but think about how her mother may be the key to his acceptance to the ivy league university of his dreams. I'm not sure what I was expecting, I just wanted this book to exceed my expectations when all it did was fulfill what I thought would happen in the first place. His mum is pursuing her dream to become a firefighter, his father is the super at a Manhattan high rise, he has a thriving social life, his best friend, Ming a shoe-obsessed cinnamon roll and a dream to end up at Columbia. I should really listen to my inner self when I dnf a book and not come back to it just because I'm seeing a lot of high ratings through my feed.
