1) She has amnesia.
2) She’s on the run from her father’s creditors.
3) She’s enjoying her last days on earth.
Ever since Jang Min Hee walked into Gio’s small museum, she’s given him one excuse after another about why she’s vacationing at scenic Boracay Island. Rarely has Gio’s neat and organized world been shaken like this. Soon he finds himself scrambling over rocks, hiding in dressing rooms, and dragging her out of bars. But how can Gio tell what’s true from what isn’t? Their worlds are getting unraveled–one story at a time.

What readers are saying:
“I am glad that Cover (Story) Girl portrays Boracay as more than just powdery sand and scenic beach. It is able to weave into the story the other (more unpopular) side of Boracay and snippets of Aklan culture and tradition (including the dialect) and don’t I just love that? It is not often that I get to read a Filipino contemporary romance which is not set in the big city of Metro Manila and for once, I get to read about familiar places and phrases. Somehow, all these local culture has made me all the more involved in the story.”

“Overall, Cover Story Girl is a short read that had me laughing instantly at the first pages. If you’re looking for a light book with a summery feel to it, then this is for you.”

“I loved that the main character is a straight-laced, rod-up-his-bum Filipino boy who works at a museum. I loved how his love interest is a lively Korean girl who could have been any other manic pixie dream girl but was much more than that. I loved that it’s a multicultural romance set in Boracay, and not only the island as tourists know it, but its hidden roads and deep crevices that most people rarely see. I loved how the story was steeped in culture and history, and how the romance kind of creeps up on you the way it creeps up on Gio. I loved/hated how it made me crave for calamansi muffins.”
