Dating Makes Perfect


Pintip Dunn

FROM THE BOOK JACKET: The Tech sisters dont date in high school. Not because theyre not asked. Not because theyre not interested. Not even because no one can pronounce their long, Thai last name—hence the shortened, awkward moniker. But simply because theyre not allowed.

Until now.

In a move that other Asian American girls know all too well, six months after the older Tech twins got to college, their parents asked, Why arent you engaged yet? The sisters retaliated by vowing that they wont marry for ten (maybe even twenty!) years, not until theyve had lots of the dating practice that they didnt get in high school.

In a shocking war on the status quo, her parents now insist that their youngest daughter, Orrawin (aka Winnie), must practice fake dating in high school. Under their watchful eyes, of course—and organized based on their favorite rom-coms. Cause that wont end in disaster.

The first candidate? The son of their longtime friends, Mat Songsomboon—arrogant, infuriating, and way too good-looking. Winnies known him since they were toddlers throwing sticky rice balls at each other. And her parents love him.

If only he werent her sworn enemy.

Pintip Dunn (Author of Forget Tomorrow)AUTHOR INFO: A first-generation Thai American, Pintip Dunn grew up in a tiny town in Kansas. She went on to graduate from Harvard University, magna cum laude, with an A.B. and to receive her J.D. at Yale Law School.

Pintip is a two-time RITA® award winner and a New York Times bestselling author of young adult fiction. Her books have been translated into four languages, and they have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award and a Kirkus Best Book of the Year.

Shes obsessed with penguins, and her childhood dream was to marry someone whose last name was Gwynn—so that her name could be Pin Gwynn. Alas, she got stuck with Dunn instead, but her husband and three children are worth the sacrifice. They all visit Thailand yearly in order to stay connected with her family.
