I really flew through this one! You just can't help but root for fish-out-of-water Midori as she struggles to stand on her own two feet after following her American fiance from Japan to San Fransisco, only to end up promptly dumped for his blond ex and stranded in the U.S. without a green card or much English-speaking ability.

The Japanese culture references are spot-on (except for one*), the author is witty, and of course like any other chick-lit you know from the start who she's going to end up with, but there are still many surprises along the way.

*There's a scene from Midori's past, when she is living in Japan, and she says something to a classmate and the girl shrugs in response. Gestures are not universal, they are culture-specific, and the shrug is a VERY western gesture.

But, nitpicking aside, I just adored this book!
