I need this book for an upcoming book discussion...Do you have it & do you happen to be running a deal right now?  Also, what did you think of it?

Thanks, Shayla

Yes, I do have it on my shelf. It is a great book! It's very rare I find one that I just can't put down, but this was definitely one of them. One of my top 10!

At first I wasn't so sure I would like it.  When the lead character gets to America, the story seems very shallow.  But, I thought it perked up very nicely and well thought out.  I think it depicted the immigrant experience very well.

I liked it, but found ther ending to be a bit...expecatable.  Like watching a romantic comedy with the expected outcome.  But a good read nonetheless.

It wasn't really "deep", but I loved the story.  I don't know if it is a realistic portrayal of an immigrant experience, but it was a fun story.

I just read it all in one day yesterday, and really enjoyed it!  I have it on my shelf now if anyone else is interested.

I agree, it was not real deep but a great story just the same. I enjoyed it.
