This book is about Hiromi. It starts in Japan when her father was a young boy who was going to become a sushi chef. After many years of training and practice, he gets the opportunity to be a sushi chef in the United States, where he settles, meets his wife, and has a daughter, Hiromi. Her father works very long hours, and when she gets older, she convinces her father to take her along to the fish market and then to his restaurant. Soon, she' is training to be a sushi chef and one day becomes one of the first girl sushi chefs in the United States.Throughout the story Hiromi learns a lot about her families culture when she attends school for it on the weekends. This book teaches how hard it may be to become a chef and teaches how hard work and dedication can pay off. The illustrator uses watercolors to portray everything. It is good to teach about different cultures and can teach young girls that they can do anything if they are willing to put in the work.
