    Wow. This. Book. Is. Excellent.

    I am a humble bisexual. I see a pretty girl on the cover. I want to read book with pretty girl on the cover.

    UPDATE: Always trust book covers featuring pretty girls! They haven’t failed me yet!

    This somehow did so much more than I expected it to, even though I guess the cover copy is clear what it's about, but there was just...so much that was so good.

    This somehow did so much more than I expected it to, even though I guess the cover copy is clear what it's about, but there was just...so much that was so good. I definitely came away learning a lot more about Japanese internment and its aftereffects than I remember absorbing from high school, but I think the way CJ was coming from a family that historically hadn't really...prospered in the area of romantic love and the ways both that and her own past kind of shut down her heart was really lovely too. I love when characters are formed by their experiences, by nature and nurture, and I think Sugiura nailed all the different kinds of things that build who we are and how they come into our lives, from outside factors like bigotry's effect on economics to things we don't even realize we're observing.

    I also just really love how everyone, and I mean

    , is deeply flawed in real, human ways, and they each come to realize it about themselves in these sort of staggered moments, identifying their weaknesses and why they make their choices. There aren't easy answers and a lot of these conversations, including the ugly ones, are just so real. I don't think every reader will love where everything lands, but that's something I particularly love about the way this book is crafted.

    Also, because I know people always wonder about queer rep when an author's last book was queer: the love interest is bi, the MC's best friend and the MC's adversary are both lesbians, and the word aromantic is on the page, although it doesn't actually apply to anyone in the story. Also, almost everyone in the book is of color.

    Me every time I try to eat gummy bears and then ten minutes later poop my guts out

    Time to play a game called Am I Actually Interested in This Book? or Is The Girl on The Cover Just Pretty?
