Meredith Ireland was born in Korea and adopted by a New York librarian. Her love of books started early and although she pursued both pre-med at Rollins College and law at the University of Miami, stories were her fate. She currently resides in Saratoga Springs with her two children, and Bob, a carnival goldfish, who’s likely a person. She is the author of The Jasmine Project, a Junior Library Guild Gold Selection and one of Boston Public Library’s Best YA Books of 2021, and Everyone Hates Kelsie Miller, a Forbes Most Anticipated YA of 2022.

Today Tonight Tomorrow meets A Pho Love Story in this whip-smart young adult novel about a girl who embarks on a road trip with her longtime rival to win back her best friend and his girlfriend.

The Jasmine Project 

(Simon & Schuster, Hardcover, $19.99)

Jenny Han meets The Bachelorette in this “sparkling, witty, warm-hearted gem” (Karen M. McManus, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying) of a romantic comedy about a teen Korean American adoptee who unwittingly finds herself at the center of a competition for her heart, as orchestrated by her overbearing, loving family.

“Ireland pens a refreshing YA contemporary about a young girl finding herself and taking a stance to finally live on her own terms. This charming read is sure to lure readers in with its promise of romance, but it will truly capture hearts with its affectionate exploration of family.”
