Reviews

"Delightfully romantic and hugely refreshing! I loved every page!"--Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Dumplin'
"With intelligent dialogue surrounding diversity, representation and responsible social action, This Time Will Be Different is a timely, smart novel that readers of contemporary teen fiction will likely devour."--Shelf Awareness
Praise for It's Not Like It's a Secret: "The graceful complexity of this first-person narrative is an accomplishment in itself. Sana is a fully realized protagonist with faults and unacknowledged privilege alongside her nuanced experience of identity and "model minority" racism. 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)
"Fresh, vibrant, affecting and powerful."--New York Times Book 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
"A gripping, emotionally charged story that presents a window into a uniquely Japanese American experience."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Sugiura deftly weaves historical fact into this coming-of-age narrative, providing an entertaining and informative backdrop that allows CJ to explore her own sense of identity while giving readers a front seat to her process."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Praise for This Time Will Be Different: "Sugiura tackles an abundance of topics with finesse, including social and economic injustice, allyship, and feminism, simultaneously breaking down the Asian-American immigration narrative and the myth of the model minority. Essential."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Sugiura expertly details an intricate web of relationships with exquisite precision and wonderfully cringey moments to explore the joys, frustrations, and conundrums of love."--David Yoon, New York Times bestselling author of Frankly in Love
