Lunar New Year Love Story is a heartwarming, full colour, YA graphic novel rom-com about fate, family and falling in love, from superstars Gene Luen Yang and LeUyen Pham.

She was destined for heartbreak. Then fate handed her love.

Val is ready to give up on love. It's led to nothing but secrets and heartbreak, and she's pretty sure she's cursed — no one in her family, for generations, has ever had any luck with love.

But then a chance encounter with a pair of cute lion dancers sparks something in Val. Is it real love? Could this be her chance to break the family curse? Or is she destined to live with a broken heart forever . . . ?

Yang’s storytelling is a multigenerational, multilayered, multicultural masterpiece of searching for lasting, empathic connection.
Valentina’s quest is full of swoony moments that will satisfy romance readers, while her fearless journey of personal growth will win over everyone else.
