Fav book

This book is definitely a love letter to Little Tokyo and its community. You can tell the author has a soft spot for the place through her writing. As for the characters, I really like all of them. It's nice to see Rika, our main character, grow throughout the entire book. Also, I feel bad for her since she has gotten so much hate from Craig and his dad.

I adore the romance between Rika and Henry in this book. There are many scenes of the two of them hanging out and discussing what it's like being biracial and not being accepted in their communities. Seeing them navigating their relationship is pretty great since I love them together.

As for my critique, I wish things aren't being repeated all the time. Whenever we read from Rika's perspective, there are certain things being told to us numerous times, so by the end it feels redundant. But overall, I really enjoy this book, and I think people'd enjoy this as well.

Thank you to Penguin Teen for providing me with an ARC!! I love it❤️

Fun

this book resonated so much with me. I saw myself in Rika's anger, loneliness and hurt. I cannot express how happy I am that biracial kids will be able to see themselves represented in this book, will be able to see that they're not alone in their feelings and experiences.

this was such a lovely book about self-discovery and believing in your own happy ending! (4.22)

A very dramatic story

This story is about Rika, who is an orphanage, living and working together with her cousins and her aunts that she loves the most. As a Japanese-American who is living in Los Angeles, one day, she met with a guy named Grace Kimura, a rom-com actor, and starts to find herself and began her journey in search of her long-lost mother. The storyline is very dramatic and interesting for those who love drama-styled storyline.
