BOOK REVIEW: The Epic Crush of Genie Lo

Y’know what I hate? When a review starts off with a recap of the plot. If I’m interested in the book, I’ve already read the plot synopsis and nothing anyone puts in their review really tops what the publisher/author has already written.

WHEW. So glad I got that off my chest. Here’s what’s on F.C. Yee’s site about The Epic Crush of Genie Lo:

“The struggle to get into a top-tier college consumes sixteen-year-old Genie Lo’s every waking thought. But when her sleepy Bay Area town comes under siege from hell-spawn straight out of Chinese folklore, her priorities are suddenly and forcefully rearranged.

Prison Playbook: Episode 14


Wow. I can’t believe I’m almost to the end of this drama! And yet I can believe it, because I keep wanting to push play at the end of each episode to find out just what happens–that’s how I am at the end of the really good ones. It’s been an interesting exercise to see Je Hyeok grow during his time in prison, and to see who he truly is. I hope the final episode gives us a glimpse of where he ends up in the future, because I’ve grown very fond of this single-minded man who is far smarter than he acts.
