Praise for Well, That Was Unexpected:

Well, That was Unexpected is a delightful, hilarious, captivating love letter to Indonesia, and coming of age in a large meddlesome family, and the thrill of finding your person where you least expect it!” Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis

“A hilarious, heartfelt rom-com with a refreshing take on matchmaking, complete with embarrassing, yet well meaning, parents and a social media twist.”Krystal Marquis, author of The Davenports

Charming and immersive, this book feels like taking a trip to Indonesia. Jesse Q. Sutanto writes such vibrant characters, with gorgeous descriptions of setting, culture, and food. Don’t read this on an empty stomach!”Nicole Lesperance, author of The Depths.

“[Y]ou will enjoy every minute of it.”E! Online

“Sutanto is the queen of quirky heroines in borderline chaotic situations.”BuzzFeed

★ ”The novel is full to the brim with humor, heart, and a joyous celebration of Chinese Indonesian culture. In a novel that brings to mind Bridget Jones’ Diary, Sutanto has created a book that readers will want to return to again and again.”Booklist, starred review

“[An] uproarious rom-com…Sutanto explores the richness of Indonesian culture and history through alternating first-person perspectives, a large and vibrant Chinese Indonesian cast, well-timed comedy, and soap opera–worthy drama in this summery read.”—PW

“Sutanto’s novel is full of hijinks, humor, and heart. A delightfully lively rom-com.”—Kirkus Reviews
