I always enjoyed his interactions with people, be it his parents, best friend Ming, Corrine, dog owners, or even his classmates. With a focused drive to succeed and attend Princeton, she's turned her high school career into a marathon race of studying, applications, and academic achievement. I wasn't 100% sold on the ending but overall I had a wonderful time reading this and loved the diverse characters.

I love cute romantic books because not only do they make me feel all warm and gooey inside, they also make me regret being a single gay bitch with no friends.This is a sharply funny and insightful novel about the countless hustles we have to keep from doing the hardest thing: being ourselves.

In Charming As A Verb, Corinne and Henri's relationship evolves from just neighbors/classmates, to friends, to lovers.

Set in my favourite thing ever, New York City, the story follows the young adult life of Henri Haltiwanger. I should really listen to my inner self when I dnf a book and not come back to it just because I'm seeing a lot of high ratings through my feed. With amazing black leads, a stunning love story, and wonderful characters that tug at your heartstrings, I wholeheartedly recommend this book! It's pretty clear here who is the sun and who is the hapless, rotating planet with vague signs of intelligent life. It's a busy, busy, world out there and Henri is teetering toward the edge with all that he's balancing in the air.

I loved the characters of Henry and Corrinne's parents, their friends, and even the teachers at school. Instead, the author drops that arc early on, subsequently morphing the novel into a predictable rom-com. He was also a first generation American, who was under a LOT of pressure from his parents to achieve their dream of him attending Columbia, and for once, his charm might not be enough to help him attain this goal.Henri Haltiwanger, high school senior with a trademark Smile, is navigating the end of high school amidst classes, debate team, his dog-walking side business, and applying to college with his hopes and dreams resting on admission to Columbia. Norris’ evolution from cynical outsider to caring insider is a journey well-worth following—especially as it’s accompanied with laugh out loud moments [and]insightful revelations. The ways wealth means more opportunities and the ways Henri doesn’t have the same possibilities, managing his dog walking, while his classmates have multiple tutors.

I adored Henry, even if he's far from perfect and makes plenty of mistakes, and I also loved Corinne. Regarding the plot, I will say that I would have liked to see more consequences to some of Henri’s actions.First week of the semester like: I'm ridiculously burnt out and need at least three months of vacation. I wish there were switching of povs because Henri was not doing a good job at narrating the whole book.
