I really enjoyed this book. Not only was the subject matter dealt with in a good way, but it was well written. I also found it fascinating to read about the Japanese culture in which Kana, a half Jewish, half Japanese girl, is sent to live in for the summer. She spends the summer with her relatives to help her process and heal after her part in the tragedy at home.
