A fresh, joyful YA novel that is layered with themes of immigration, cultural identity, and finding your voice in any language.
Sixteen-year-old Ana is a poet and a lover of language. Except that since she moved to New Jersey from Argentina, she can barely find the words to express how she feels.
At first Ana just wants to return home. Then she meets Harrison, the very cute, very American boy in her math class, and discovers the universal language of racing hearts. But when she begins to spend time with Neo, the Greek Cypriot boy from ESL, Ana wonders how figuring out what her heart wants can be even more confusing than the grammar they’re both trying to master. After all, the rules of English may be confounding, but there are no rules when it comes to love.
With playful and poetic breakouts exploring the idiosyncrasies of the English language, Love in English is witty and effervescent, while telling a beautifully observed story about what it means to become “American.”

Liebe kennt keine Sprachbarrieren
Ana ist 16 und kommt aus Argentinien. Als ihr Dad sie und ihre Mutter zu sich nach New Jersey holt, weiß sie, dass sie sich glücklich schätzen müsste. Doch was soll sie tun, wenn im Unterricht die Sprache wie ein Rauschen an ihr vorbeizieht und sie kaum etwas versteht? Erst als sie den griechischen Jungen Neo kennenlernt, der an einem Wörterbuch über Glück arbeitet, findet auch Ana einen Umgang mit ihrer Fremdheit. Schon bald merkt sie, dass Sprache viel mehr bedeutet als einzelne Begriffe oder Sätze. Und dass sie mit ihren Gedichten andere im Innersten erreichen kann.
