I absolutely loved this book. My only complaint was that I wish it kept going; I wished to know how Sarah re-adjusted to American culture. I felt that the book was very relatable, as I too have studied Japanese, worked at that camp, visited Japan, and have lived in the areas Sarah grew up. It was also quite interesting to read about her experiences as a JET, since I have many friends who have also participated in that program.

An engrossing account of life as a foreigner in rural Japan in the mid-90s, before internet and text messaging made the world smaller. The author’s love for her adopted village, as well as for her life in the Midwestern US, makes this a coming of age story that is a joy to read.
