Ssues When they get in trouble they seek diplomatic immunityEnter foster kid out of water Elle Zoellner who on her sixteenth birthday discovers that her long lost father Kenji Takahari is actually a Japanese hotel mogul and wants her to come live with him Um yes please Elle jets off first class from Washington DC to Tokyo which seems like a dream come true Until she meets her enigmatic father her way too fab aunt and her hyper critical grandmother who seems to wish Elle didn Sometimes I just wonder what revision processes a book went through I was stoked about this one I love Japanese culture and I ve never read a YA book set there The cover is gorgeous The premise is neat But this book was just a huge miss for me all around the writing felt really juvenile like middle school at best and yet the book had some adult themes that just sort of made the book feel like it didn t know who it was for lots of swearing mentions of date rape and alcoholism but then reacting like OMG IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING and referring to her new boyfriend as the the most awesomest guy The romance was juvenile and paper thin The characters were lacking in depth I didn t care about anyone nothing happens until literally the last 12 pages Elle gets very self righteous about how rude and mean the ex brats and her new family are but she herself is so judgmental and horrible about Japanese customs and culture it was legitimately tough to read She was so irritating Her culture shock was not interesting or cute It was borderline offensive and came across as so privileged despite her less than ideal upbringing in general I was disappointed with the lack of actual Japan research and knowledge Sure there were fun tourist activities and cultural anecdotes but literally everywhere Elle goes in this book were places I went on a recent ten day trip to Japan It just felt surface level And some of the actual Japanese language stuff is inaccurate which felt lazy Anyway I hope to find YA books set in Japan s because I was pretty disappointed by this one

    DNF at 68% Because when I wasn't pissed off I was bored I don't even know where to start with this I guess I'm glad I borrowed the book from the library instead of buying it Which based on GR reviews I figured I'd be better off doing; when everyone says it's like a tourist's guide to Japan than a novel with substance they are not wrongI pick

    So this book wasn’t terrible but let's just say it wasn’t for meThe characters felt very one dimensional I didn’t connect or care for any of them really Her so called family on her father's side were very unlikeable Her father was cold and distant Don’t even get me started on her grandmotherI’ll leave pieces of a conversation here for you “Why is your skin dark”“My mother’s father was part Native American and African Ame
