    WHEW. I'll be honest, I saw so much of myself in CJ's grudge-holding/pettiness that a huge prevailing mood was "I'm In This Picture And I Don't Like It." HDU call me out this way!! At the same time, Sugiura EXCELS at writing teenagers like actual teenagers, and adults with nuance a...

    The period of Japanese internment camps in the United States and Canada is so rarely discussed, and honestly, I don't really remembering it being covered much at all when I was in school, so I hope this book gives me some insight on what they all went through. ...

    This somehow did so much more than I expected it to, even though I guess the cover copy is clear what it's about, but there was just...so much that was so good. I definitely came away learning a lot more about Japanese internment and its aftereffects than I remember absorbing from high...

    3.75 This would've been so much better if it was gayer but that applies to all books so it's fine, I guess. CJ (our mc) has a gay best friend and a bisexual boy as a love interest!!!! I REPEAT: A BISEXUAL BOY AS A LOVE INTEREST!!!!!! WITH A GIRL!!!! THIS IS GOOD SHIT!!!! Okay, ...

    4.5 stars. This beautiful book is full of so many things; family, identity, difficult choices, unexpected love, and forgiveness. The answers CJ looks for might not be the ones she seeks, but that doesn't always mean failure. Sugiura knows how to write a complicated teen facing coming o...

    I had heard a lot of mixed things going into this one so I wasn't sure how I would feel, but I ended up really enjoying this! I love a YA book that explores teens being messy and making mistakes in a REALISTIC manner. I'm a fan. ...

    I feel terrible giving this so low a rating, but I just really didn't enjoy it. I was incredibly excited about learning more about a history I was previously completely unaware of, and the summary made it sound that was the main thing of the book. It wasn't. It's more of a regular run ...

    This book handles the racism buried in American history, especially directed toward Japanese-Americans after Pearl Harbor, by smacking it in the face with this 400-page tome of truth. Humorous, diverse, and unapologetic, This Time Will Be Different is a masterpiece that attacks the ter...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars CJ knew she would never live up to her mother's expectations. She had tried, and failed, at a myriad of endeavors, but the one thing she had some pride in was her work at the family flower shop. Unfortunately, the business was on the brink of collapsing, and if CJ ...

    OKAY, WOW. Let me list everything I love about this book 1) The family set up. I really liked the fact that CJ was raised by a single mom, wondered about her dad, but didn't go on a search for him. Her aunt lived with them and helped raise her and she called her aunt by her first na...

    4.5* Oh I loved this for so many reasons - The characters were wonderful, lovable and flawed. They felt real. They were messy teenagers who had good intentions at heart but made mistakes, were called out on them and were allowed to grow from those mistakes. - The writing was so...

    Okay - here comes a book I feel very conflicted on. First, I absolutely love the topics this book broaches. I grew up on the east coast, so my school history classes taught me almost nothing covered in this book. I had to learn it on my own, especially since our government doesn't r...
