Maria E. Andreu
A fresh, joyful YA novel that is layered with themes of immigration, cultural identity, and finding your voice in any language. Sixteen-year-old Ana is a poet and a lover of language. Except that since she moved to New Jersey from Argentina, she can barely find the words to express how she feels.At first Ana just wants to return home. Then she meets Harrison, the very cute, very American boy in her math class, and discovers the universal language of racing hearts. But when she begins to spend time with Neo, the Greek Cypriot boy from ESL, Ana wonders how figuring out what her heart wants can be even more confusing than the grammar they’re both trying to master. After all, the rules of English may be confounding, but there are no rules when it comes to love.With playful and poetic breakouts exploring the idiosyncrasies of the English language, Love in English is witty and effervescent, while telling a beautifully observed story about what it means to become “American.”

"This was a cute book. Not much storyline but an easy read!"
"This was an amazing book. It allowed to explore different cultures while still reading something fun. Not only was it a multicultural book it was also a romance. Overall this book was an amazing read."
"I was hoping to love this book but the plot wasn’t that great, IMO. I feel like it was predictable & I’m never one to predict anything in books/movies. I did like how you’re put into the main characters shoes & you feel as frustrated as her at not understanding English. It also hit home in some points, being an immigrant myself & having to learn English. Just wish it was a more interesting plot but it’s a nice & easy read! "
