Loved the journey main character Shiraz takes to learn about courage and standing on your own two feet and being a part of your family, for better or for worse. The depiction of Asian-American culture was engrossing and people who have struggled to integrate two cultures in their lives with empathize and see parts of their own struggle in this novel.

Shiraz's relationships with her family members and the friendships she learns to make over the course of the novel are the strongest element here, much more so than the slightly predictable romance, which involves falling unexpectedly for a best friend when it might already be to late.
