Throwback by Maurene Goo

Just in time for the start of the school year—Throwback is a young adult novel by Maurene Goo that begins with Sam, a Generation Z Korean-American girl, attending high school amid constant tensions with her mom, Priscilla. After the two have a big fight, Sam is suddenly thrown back in time—to the 1990s. There, she meets 17-year-old Priscilla. Not only does Sam have to deal with her mom, school and dating boys in a whole new way, she’s now limited by ’90s technology. Sam must find a way to fix things, so she can return to her modern world. Back to the Future meets first-generation Korean-American experience in this fun-filled, yet poignant, coming-of-age novel.
