Publisher's Summary

When Dimple Met Rishi meets Ugly Delicious in this funny, smart romantic comedy, in which two Vietnamese-American teens fall in love and must navigate their newfound relationship amid their families’ age-old feud about their competing, neighboring restaurants. 

If Bao Nguyen had to describe himself, he’d say he was a rock. Steady and strong, but not particularly interesting. His grades are average, his social status unremarkable. He works at his parents’ pho restaurant, and even there, he is his parents’ fifth favorite employee. Not ideal. 

If Linh Mai had to describe herself, she’d say she was a firecracker. Stable when unlit, but full of potential for joy and fire. She loves art and dreams pursuing a career in it. The only problem? Her parents rely on her in ways they’re not willing to admit, including working practically full-time at her family’s pho restaurant. 

For years, the Mais and the Nguyens have been at odds, having owned competing, neighboring pho restaurants. Bao and Linh, who’ve avoided each other for most of their lives, both suspect that the feud stems from feelings much deeper than friendly competition. 

But then a chance encounter brings Linh and Bao in the same vicinity despite their best efforts and sparks fly, leading them both to wonder what took so long for them to connect. But then, of course, they immediately remember. 

Can Linh and Bao find love in the midst of feuding families and complicated histories?

Editor's Pick

The universe was calling, and Loan Le answered
Author Loan Le must have known our unspoken need for a love story about two teens caught in a feud between their parents’ competing phở restaurants. It’s so yummy and delicious! For me, experiencing A Phở Love Story through audio felt essential, not only because Vietnamese narrators VyVy Nguyen and Ryan Do know their way around the Vietnamese phrasing, but because main characters Linh and Bảo are so cute and funny when you hear them through Nguyen’s and Do’s voicing. I truly felt for them and recognized my younger self in their shared struggles to find their path in life. But, one person can be the catalyst that sets us on the right track, and Linh and Bảo are those people for each other. I loved listening as they discovered that, and I felt more hopeful and affirmed after this story than I have in a long while. —[Melissa B., Audible Editor]
