Rita is biracial adopted daughter of lesbian mothers and trying to find herself (and her natural mother) in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo. Great characters, engaging writing. Highly recommended. ( )

I had a halfway cross country road trip and this book was in my car bag. I read the whole thing, cover to cover, in about six or seven hours, give or take. I found out about this book because of TikTok, and I have to say, it was phenomenal. This is the type of book where, even if I wouldn't have been in a car all day, I probably still would have wanted to read it in one sitting.

The writing is addicting, the characters in depth, and the plot is compelling. I loved that it showed how stereotypes can hurt people, and the fact that he was famous and she didn't care was a great addition. However, one of my favorite parts had to be how they handled anger. Most of the time, people get upset whenever you get angry, saying that you are overreacting. However, this book showed how you can channel your anger and use it productively, to where it helps you and motivates you, rather than hurts you and those around you.

Another great part was the fact that this book showed how racism goes both ways, as well as the damage that is can cause to a person, and that everyone should be accepted, regardless of what they look like, because we are all the same underneath. And who can forget the Japanese culture that was sprinkled in there. It was fun to get to learn about Japanese fairytales.

My only complaint with this book would have to be the amount of coarse language that was used throughout it, as the f word was dropped several times, but that is truly all I have against it.

In the end, I can't stop saying enough good things about this book, as it has become one of my favorites. It is a romance with no spice, as the only sex scene is a fade to black. If you like romance stories with realistic characters in it going on a journey to find someone, than this is the book for you! ( )

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher for promotional purposes.

This was such a cute and heartwarming story!

I loved the representation in this. Both the main characters are biracial. Rika is Japanese and white and Hank is Filipino and Chinese. I am biracial myself (Filipino and white) so I related a lot to them. I really resonated with something Rika said. She states, “But it’s not like white people look at me and think I’m one of them” (pg. 130). I have felt that way my whole life.

Also in terms of representation, Rika’s aunts were lesbians which I found very refreshing and important especially in regards to the Asian American community. Often times LBGTQA+ people are not accepted by the Asian American community and this book highlighted that fact.

I liked that the Rika was flawed. So many young adult female leads are written as perfect people, so it was nice to see one who had flaws. It made her feel more realistic.

I also enjoyed that the city of LA was utilized well. Numerous books just use LA as a backdrop but never explore the city. Here, it was given a life of its own and featured lesser known attractions like the old Griffith Park Zoo (I never knew this existed and need to check it out!).

Lastly, going back to Asian American communities, this book delved into the shortcomings of said communities. One character states, “I really wish so many of our communities would just, like, acknowledge that anger isn’t always a bad emotion…You can’t just reject it — you have to let yourself feel it, make room for it, or all that repressing will burn you up inside” (pg 313). That is so true. We are often taught to just hold our anger inside but that isn’t healthy. We can and should be angry. Additionally, the book also talks about shame in relation to not being what is considered to be “perfect” in the community.

Overall, this book was relatable with a super cute romance, but it also struck a more serious note and shed a light on the Asian American experience. ( )

Rika doesn't think she's princess material. Unlike her cousin, Belle, she's only half-Japanese, and has had to deal with racism and unacceptance from both the Asian community in Little Tokyo and the outside world, even as she wins the top spot in her dojo for her judo skills. But when she agrees to drive Belle, who's won Queen of the Nikkei Week, a Japanese cultural festival, in the parade, Rika isn't expecting to meet a teen celebrity from Dance Off skulking around her aunt's car. She definitely doesn't expect to be attracted to him or to meet up with him again. But rising Hollywood star Henry Chen may hold answers to where Rika truly belongs.

This is a modern fairytale, and each chapter starts with a once-upon-a-time fairytale storytelling device. But it flips the trope around, with both Henry and Rika having to rescue each other at different points in the story.

These characters are fierce and loving, investing their whole hearts into the world. Rika and Henry fall for each other rapidly, and their chemistry is pretty electric for a young adult book. A large part of Rika's storyline involves her temper, which her aunt calls her kaiju (monster)-temper. She famously bit a boy when she was eight, nearly getting kicked out of her dojo. Rika uses the illustration of the nure-onna, one of her favorite monster from Japanese folklore, because she's cunning in how she exacts her revenge. Rika struggles to learn to think of her passion and differences from her community as a good thing.

This is a powerful story of what it means to belong and realizing that we all deserve a happy ending.

Thank you to Penguin Teen and NetGalley for the advance review copy of this book. ( )
