teen fiction (teen from Haitian immigrant family meets "intense" Black teen during their senior year)

Clever characters and engaging story ( )

this was fine. it started out better than that and dropped a bit through the middle for me and then ended on a little higher note. the characters were fun (although not too deeply drawn), the writing was fine, the conflict felt pretty real. ( )

Charming Henri Haltiwanger, son of Haitian immigrants, is a scholarship student at a posh private arts high school in Manhattan. He's very good at keeping it superficial and hiding his status from his rich classmates. To earn money, he creates a dog-walking website to make it look like a business, and not just a high school kid earning a few extra bucks. He's on the debate team, because he's a good talker, and popular with his classmates.

Enter Corinne Troy, a student at FATE Academy and one of his neighbors in the apartment building where his Dad is the super. When he gets the gig as her Mom's dog-walker, Corinne, a super student whose social skills are low, does a little research and figures out that Henri's website is a sham. She blackmails him by trading social skills lessons for her silence about his "company."

These are nice kids with loving parents. They're also kids who are on the Ivy League track and anxious about getting accepted to their dream schools. What starts as blackmail ends up as something else, and along the way, Henri makes a big mistake.

I liked this story, though it could have been shorter, but I liked the resolution as well. I think it would appeal to teens who are like Henri, somewhere on the road to Ivy League admissions. ( )

I was hoping to end my reading year with a fun and quick binge read and Charming as a Verb by Ben Philippe definitely fit the bill.
This meet-cute YA romance set in NYC has Henri, a charismatic senior at an elite high school in NYC juggling high school, debate team, college admissions and his successful dog walking business. His world intersects in said meet-cute with Corinne, an intense/socially inept and quirky fellow senior at the same high school who also lives in Henri's building. I loved the character of Corinne!
Friends and family member side characters are engaging and entertained me.
I enjoyed this read which gave me unexpected Naruto references and some Haitian Creole as well! ( )

I very much wish I had not discovered Mr. Philippe until later in his career so there were a bunch of his books I hadn't read yet. *sigh* ( )
