" A friend recommended this book to me because she said that the main character reminded her so much of me and I just had to read it. I'm glad I did. It was a quick and easy read--great for summers at the beach or by the pool. It's not a book you need to study but it is a beautiful little story. If I'm anything like the main character I hope my ending is like hers (yeah, if you've been reading my reviews, I very much prefer happy endings). Another great thing about this book is that it explores (in a very easy no-nonsense way) the intricacies of family--between daughter and father, mother and son, etc. I also loved the light shed on the difficulty a single mom has with dating and all that she has to give up to raise her child. But my favorite part about this book was the cross-cultural link. "
