"If The Princess Diaries met Crazy Rich Asians, you would get close to the wonderfully chaotic splendor of Tokyo Ever After." --Entertainment Weekly (Best Book of Summer)

"Izumi's determined spirit and character arc will endear readers to her. A fun experience that readers will want to read again and again." --School Library Journal, starred review (Best Book of the Year)

"A refreshing and spot-on depiction of Japanese Americans exploring their heritage, with appeal far beyond female Asian readers." --Booklist, starred review

"A fresh, funny, emotive, inspiring, and empowering #ownvoices triumph." --Shelf Awareness

"This YA novel with broad appeal follows a Japanese American girl on the ride of her life as she discovers her father is the Crown Prince of Japan. Amidst the backdrop of cherry blossoms, castles, and royal life, she has real-world struggles trying to fit in to two cultures." --Newsweek

"Move over, Mia Thermopolis! Princess Izumi will completely capture your heart while making you laugh nonstop. With an unforgettable voice and a heart-fluttering romance, Tokyo Ever After is an instant favorite." --Gloria Chao, author of American Panda

"Despite the swoon-worthy love interest and glittering palaces, Tokyo Ever After is not your typical princess story. Izumi is a spunky, irreverent, lovable narrator who struggles to reconcile her American upbringing with her Japanese heritage. A fresh and distinctly modern fairy tale." --Katharine McGee, author of the American Royals series

"Emiko's flair for sumptuous detail--Food! Castles! Swoony confessions! Court drama! Cherry blossoms by the million!--locked me helplessly into a world of splendor I never wanted to leave." --David Yoon, author of Frankly in Love
