This refreshing take on a high school love story follows 16-year-old Ana, who has recently immigrated from Argentina to New Jersey, as she navigates friendship, family, crushes, and adapting to a new home, all while dealing with a significant language barrier. Ana’s story is compelling and relatable, with excerpts of her poetry perfectly placed throughout to give perspective into her journey of learning the linguistic oddities of English as a non-native speaker.
Sixteen-year-old Ana is a poet and a lover of language. Except that since she moved to New Jersey from Argentina, she can barely find the words to express how she feels.
At first Ana just wants to return home. Then she meets Harrison, the very cute, very American boy in her math class, and discovers the universal language of racing hearts. But when she begins spending time with Neo, the Greek Cypriot boy from ESL, Ana wonders how figuring out what her heart wants can be even more confusing than the grammar they’re both trying to master. After all, the rules of English may be confounding, but there are no rules when it comes to love.
With playful and poetic breakouts exploring the idiosyncrasies of the English language, Love in English is witty and effervescent, while telling a beautifully observed story about what it means to become “American.”
