Book review: The Stand-In by Lily Chu

I picked this book up purely based on the cover. I’m so glad I did. I raced through it.
I loved how Gracie struggled with her to-do list (don’t we all) and how Sam annoyed her enough to burn through her normal people-pleaser tendencies.
The friendship between Gracie and FangLi was lovely. The whole story was a delightful read.

As an aside, I liked that there was a bit about what it was like being bi-racial and how Gracie felt bad about not embracing her Chinese heritage more. I even highlighted a few bits to share with my bi-racial daughter (we’re not Chinese, but it still applies).

I really enjoyed this book. I will definitely look out for more from this author.
