Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One Before by David Yoo [in Bloomsbury Review]
After he swears off girls forever, loner – some might even call him a loser – Albert Kim finds first love over the summer after sophomore year … and no one is more surprised than he is! Mia, ex-girlfriend of the big jerk on campus (too bad he’s also the high school’s Mr. Popularity!), happens to have the same summer job at the local hotel. Even though they’re definitely an item by the time school’s back in session, first love is never easy. Mia’s ex has been diagnosed with cancer and he’ll do just about anything to get her back!
