This book is very wordy! The author likes to say in 20 sentences what can be said in two. As such, I skipped a lot of paragraphs which I thought were redundant. I usually love long books with lots of description. But, this was really a lot of redundant descriptions.
I still liked the story, though. There were some laugh out loud moments, and some that brought tears to my eyes. Also, I'm from two cultures as well and could absolutely relate to the character. I'd recommend this book to anyone who feels that "in between" feeling that comes from being a child of two countries, cultures, traditions, etc.
