Needing to use it like a verb because it means the difference in your survival, in the opportunities you would never have otherwise, and how necessary it is for some people.

He’s incredibly driven and committed to his future, as well as part of an ambitious immigrant family focused on truly making it. I loved the way Henri’s relationship with his parents was written, which felt genuine and relatable. Henry runs his own dog walking business and he's discovered people are more likely to trust you with their fur baby when you have a professional company behind you.CU means the world to him, and his father has always wanted him to attend CU to get the best education possible. He was also a first generation American, who was under a LOT of pressure from his parents to achieve their dream of him attending Columbia, and for once, his charm might not be enough to help him attain this goal.

Super-smart and “intense,” she discovers the scheme Halti has been running with his dog walking business, so she blackmails him. And, though he works hard, and the ivy league college admissions system is undoubtedly rigged against anyone without connections and money, his forging the recommendation letter spurs from his entitlement as well as the academic pressure from his dad.Although this book was predictable at times, I found myself easily falling into this story, rooting for Henri much more than I expected to, and falling in love with his best friend Ming. I’ve come to associate Philippe with endearing characters who are not only relatable with their quirks and dreams, but also with their fears and mistakes. When he gets caught by his quirky neighbor and classmate, Corrinne, she blackmails him to helping her make more friends.

Our main character Henri is certainly a charming one; he smiles a lot, he’s a high-achiever and overall well-rounded students, he has a busy social life, and he loves dogs.all except for one where i was seriously stressing because of the mc's bad decision making but it all worked out in the end and that's all that matters. Regarding the plot, I will say that I would have liked to see more consequences to some of Henri’s actions. It's time for him to prove that he’s more than just a charming guy, and that he is deserving of the opportunities he so desperately seeks. I adored Henry, even if he's far from perfect and makes plenty of mistakes, and I also loved Corinne. Plot-wise, this book felt like it was divided into two different parts: the first half that focuses more on the romance while the second-half focused more on the college applications.

First generation Haitian-American Henri "Halti" Haltiwanger walks dogs early in the morning before school to make some money. However, I really appreciated that with something that big, it wasn’t just brushed aside or neatly taken care of. Instalove is one of my biggest bookish pet peeves, so maybe I’ll wait and check this one out of the library instead! I really wish that we could have had a dual POV with Corinne and Henri because I think it would have added so much more to the story. Whether Henri sharing his sarcastic quips, his best friend, Ming, joking along with him, or the banter between them and Corinne, there’s a lot that kept me laughing along with these characters.Young Adult contemporaries don’t often surprise me anymore, but this one is definitely a pleasant surprise. Considering his family’s lower economic status and the limited job opportunities for high schoolers, I understand his reasoning behind this method of circumventing his disadvantages. You’re immediately immersed into his side dog-walking hustle, high performance high school and high expectation of his immigrant parents. Their first kiss Corinne just randomly jumps at him and kisses him and it talks about how she awkwardly bumps his chin with hers. He could be that stereotypical energetic puppy best friend, but he’s very genuine and kindhearted and it really shows on paper.
