Amy I really want to like this book but am struggling with it. The story centers around a girl from Vietnam moving to my hometown of Grand Rapids, the late 70s. There are some nostalgic references in here and I think the story resonates with me due to the location. However, her whole book is centered around food (hence the title) and I am getting weary of it. It is the kind of novel that I would've loved as a short story but find it daunting to get through. I plan on reading a chapter at a time with long periods in between.
