I really enjoyed this book. I loved the voice, the story telling, the point of view, the characters- especially Keiko. My heart ached for them, yet I found myself admiring them as well. I found the contrast between Keiko's parents and Henry's parents interesting, as well as the traditional vs. "modern" American views. I was frustrated by Henry's father, and while I understand his sense of duty and tradition, I didn't like him very much. I would recommend this book to anyone.
