Super Fake Love Song was quite a raw story of how a boy (Sunny Dae) changes himself in order to impress a girl. The moment I read about how Sunny was going to act like he was this really cool rock star to impress his new (and attractive) neighbor, Cirrus Soh, I had a feeling it would be quite a chaotic book. So basically, Sunny makes himself like his cool brother when his brother was in high school.

Sour

1.brutal - 3/10 - The song itself is very punk rock and is a great song for this genre, however it does not fit the style of the album. It is different instrumentation and is a completely different genre from the majority of the album.

I think that this book was great. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a little romance but also a little conflict. Anyone who likes K-pop especially will enjoy this book a ton. I think it has the perfect mix of having to choose what you love, over who you love. In this book a girl had to choose her dream of playing cello, over her special love interest. Overall, I loved reading this book and getting sucked into K-pop romance and I think anyone else who might enjoy that will love this book and I think they should read it.
