Description

Maurene Goo’s The Way You Make Me Feel tells the story of Clara’s summer reluctantly working the KoBra, her father’s Korean-Brazil fusion food truck (her grandparents are Korean, her father was born in Brazil and she was born in Los Angeles). Clara lives for laughs and pranks, and proudly proclaims, “You simply couldn’t out-jerk a jerk like me.” But meeting new people through the KoBra starts to chip away at Clara’s joker act. She starts to see the difference between chivalry and sexism and reflects on cultural experiences outside her own. Bonus: Goo’s L.A. food descriptions are positively drooly.
