Well, That Was Unexpected By Jesse Q. Sutanto Cover Image
$18.99
ISBN: 9780593433973
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Delacorte Press - September 27th, 2022

This is officially the only acceptable love story that starts with catfishing, and that is 100% because of the sweet, endearing, empathetic characters Sutanto created in Sharlot and George. It also helps that the actual catfishing was done by their parents, both trying to find a “good” kid for their “wayward” child. From start to finish, this book was an absolute delight.
