LAUNCH EVENT for Once Upon a K-Prom by KAT CHO
Pop Stars, Paparazzi, Prom Night!
Elena Soo has always felt overshadowed. Whether by her more successful older sisters, her more popular twin brother, or her more outgoing best friend, everyone except Elena seems to know exactly who they are and what they want. But she is certain about one thing - she has no interest in going to prom.
But things get a little more complicated when international K-pop superstar Robbie Choi shows up at her house to ask her to prom. Especially since before he was a pop star, Robbie Choi was her childhood best friend - and the only person who always accepted Elena as she is. And the one thing she maybe, possibly, secretly wants more than anything? For the two of them to keep the promise they made each other as kids: to go to prom together. But that was seven years ago, and with this new K-pop persona, pink hair, and stylish clothes, Robbie is nothing like the sweet, goofy boy she remembers.
Besides, prom with a guy who comes with hordes of screaming fans, online haters, and relentless paparazzi is the last thing Elena wants - even if she can't stop thinking about Robbie's smile...right?
Come meet KAT CHO, author of the wonderfully romantic, swoon-filled, Once Upon a K-Prom, at this incredible book launch and book signing!
