I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley.

This is a great little YA romance. I loved all of the details about Japan and I also loved that the plot wasn't just "girl gets the boy" but also that the girl learns a little bit about how to keep

Caitlin Moran
“You can tell whether some misogynistic societal pressure is being exerted on women by calmly enquiring, ‘And are the men doing this, as well?’ If they aren’t, chances are you’re dealing with what we strident feminists refer to as ‘some total fucking bullshit’.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Tina Fey
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Jenny Offill
“But now it seems possible that the truth about getting older is that there are fewer and fewer things to make fun of until finally there is nothing you are sure you will never be.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

Jenny Offill
“Some women make it look so easy, the way they cast ambition off like an expensive coat that no longer fits.”
