I couldn’t put the book down.

I read it in pretty much in three big “gulps”.

Hooked by the end of page one.

The story is told from the point of view of a child, and I really liked the way the author was careful not to share information about characters’ real intentions or backgrounds that the child, Michelle, could not have known.

Michelle’s mother was Japanese and her father was a from small, deeply conservative, white, blue-collar town in Wisconsin. A town dead set against change with deep-rooted fears of anyone who is different. That’s where Michelle found herself growing up from around the age of 9 (having spent her life till then in Japan).

Frankly, a very relevant read if you are wondering why there are American voters who are attracted to a presidential candidate who rides a platform of ethnic hatred.

I’m eager to read more books by Revoyr.
