Product Details


“Juicy, delightful and brimming with cultural specificity, I Guess I Live Here Now is an endlessly charming exploration of what happens when immigrant parents make good on the threat of sending a wayward Americanized kid “home.” And what happens when that home features explosively fast internet, shopping trips, transcendent snacks and cute boys galore. A dazzling, utterly swoonful romp that artfully navigates identity and place. This book has all the Korean elements your soul craves and desires. I absolutely devoured this.” 
—Mary H. K. Choi, New York Times bestselling author of Emergency Contact and Yolk

“I Guess I Live Here Now takes you on a glam romp through Seoul—by way of family secrets, sweet romance, and surprising self-discovery. Like the very best K-drama bottled up in a book.”
—Maurene Goo, author of Somewhere Only We Know

“Claire Ahn brings a fresh, charming voice to this enthralling page-turner of a debut. I Guess I Live Here Now absolutely blew me away!”
—Kody Keplinger, New York Times bestselling author of The DUFF and That’s Not What Happened

“A vibrant love letter to Seoul and a poignant coming-of-age story. Claire Ahn’s writing is fresh, funny, and heartfelt—I adored every page of Melody’s (mis)adventures. A new favorite!”
—Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of Today Tonight Tomorrow

“Ahn has transported me completely to a light-filled world full of exciting possibilities. What a perfect joy this book is during a time where most of us aren’t able to travel. I did not want to leave Seoul or Melody’s delightful company!”
—Jesse Q. Sutanto, bestselling author of The Obsession

I Guess I Live Here Now is a breath of fresh air that transports readers to the new and lively world Melody finds herself in—figuratively and literally. A sweet exploration of who and what ‘home’ really is.”
—Kelsey Rodkey, author of Last Chance Books

“My new comfort kdrama in book form – it made me feel like I was back in school in Korea again, but with much cooler friends, dilemmas, and misadventures. Immersive, fun, fresh, with a lot of heart.”
—Frances Cha, author of If I Had Your Face

“Entertaining; a drama-filled ode to family against a well-developed Seoul backdrop.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Ahn’s writing truly shines . . . in the gorgeous descriptions of Seoul and its incredible cuisine. The novel highlights important transcultural themes.”
