Reviews

"Sugiura thoughtfully explores intersecting issues of race, immigrant-family relationships, queer romance, and, less explicitly, class dynamics without implying the significance of one over the others. Well-paced, brimming with drama, and utterly vital."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A queer coming-of-age story that also tackles big topics like adultery, racism, and the cultural conflicts of immigrant families."--Brightly
"An essential and delightful choice that realistically celebrates a teen's discovery of trust in herself and in others."--School Library Journal
