From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story of love, new friendships, and one unique food truck.

Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn't so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dad’s business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind?

I have been hearing a lot about this book, even before it came out. Plus isn’t the cover for THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL gorgeous? I fell in love with it when I saw it. I put it on hold at the library. Once I started to read it, I couldn’t stop and I think if it wasn’t for work, I wouldn’t have. It was funny, breathtaking. THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL is everything that I love about YA Contemporary books. I also think that the humor in this book, also made it more fun to read. Reading it, I wished that I had read it sooner that I had. I couldn’t seem to get enough of Clara, Rose and Hamlet’s story, I needed to see what would happen with them. There was also a part of me that didn’t want to reach the end, because I didn’t want it to end. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with the story, I was hooked only a few pages in. THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL is a type of story that once you start reading it, you feel as if you are part of story, at least that’s how I felt. The ending meant that I have to say goodbye to everyone and I didn’t want to do that, it felt as if I was saying goodbye to friends. I got attached to the characters, especially Clara.

The friendship between Rose and Clara was different, considering that the two of them started out as enemies. When they were told that they both had to work at KoBra truck together and I had a feeling that it couldn’t end well. When the two of them started fighting constantly, I never imagined that the two of them ending up as good friends as they ended up. I am glad that they did, I think that Clara needed someone like that. I think Rose did as well, and in way I do think that it helped Rose, working at the food truck and bonding with Clara. By middle of the book, you would never guess that the two of them used to dislike each other. Even after Clara took off to see her mother. I could see that Rose was happy to see her. I have a feeling that this friendship will go a long way. In way I can relate to Rose, since I have anxiety myself so when she got anxious, I knew how she was feeling because I been there. I think the one time she did and Clara was there, in way it helped her and it does help, having friends or someone around when it does happen.

Hamlet, first isn’t that a cool name? I think it is. You can’t help but love him from beginning, he seems to be such funny, happy guy. Even I could tell that he liked Clara, even before Rose told her. I think the way that he asked her out, was cutest way. I loved how happy he was anytime that he was around her. I know that Clara was hesitant about him at first, but I was hoping that a guy like Hamlet, you shouldn’t let him go. I believe that any girl would dream of someone like Hamlet. I found myself smiling most of time when Hamlet was around, when they were together. After finishing the book, I did wonder what’s in store for the two of them next, Rose too and Clara’s father. After finishing THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL you will find yourself thinking, and wondering of possibility what will happen with everyone after.

THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL was the first novel that I read by MAURENE GOO and now that I have, I can’t wait to read her others. Reading this one, it inspired me a lot and I actually wanted to work on my book afterwards and I did for while. I think that THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL is a book that everyone should read. I have feeling that it will be a book that I will end up re -reading multiple times.

Beautifully written.
