by Erin Yun

The rules of the game: “Scroll through your book and stop on a random place. Whatever you land on becomes one of ten terrible titles.”

The terrible titles below are lines from my new book, Pippa Park Crush at First Sight, which is out now! Learn about the book from the Goodreads summary below, and start reading today to see where the 10 terrible titles came from:

Book Summary: Join Korean American Pippa Park in the sequel to Pippa Park Raises Her Game. Pippa picks up right where she left off...trying to balance basketball, school, friends, working at the struggling family laundromat, and fitting in at her new school. 

Drumroll are the terrible titles Pippa Park Crush at First Sight could’ve had if I picked a title by flipping through my advance copy of the book and randomly stopping on a page. While there are some serious contenders, I wouldn’t change the title of book two for all the walnut cakes in the world!

2.    This Whole Babysitting Thing 

3.    A Natural Cat Wrangler

"Pippa explores the highs and lows of friendships and first crushes in this well-crafted sequel to Pippa Park Raises Her Game. ..VERDICT This warm-hearted, feel-good series continues to realistically explore one Korean American girl’s middle school experience in a relatable way."
School Library Journal

"This is solid, classic middle-school drama fare that benefits from the interesting ways Pippa's family background is developed. An engaging variation on a familiar theme."
Kirkus Reviews

Join Pippa Park as she juggles friendships, bullying, crushes, and family in the sequel to the compelling drama-filled middle school book Pippa Park Raises Her Game.

Korean American Pippa Park picks up right where she left off...trying to balance basketball, school, friends, working at the struggling family laundromat, and fitting in. Eliot, her math tutor—and the cutest boy at school—is finally paying attention to her. And Marvel—her childhood friend—is making her required volunteering much more interesting. But things with the Royals, her new friends and teammates who rule the school, still feel a bit rocky. Especially because Caroline, a head Royal, would like nothing more than to see Pippa fail.

So when Pippa is faced with hosting the annual Christmas Eve party that could make or break her social life, how can she say no? Will Pippa make enough money to cover the costs while juggling crushes and everything else? With courage and determination, Pippa sets out to host the party, find the perfect dress, pick the right boy, and stay true to her real self.
