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 incredibly easy to read and flowed beautifully I essentially devoured this in one sitting and despite the raging sunburn I got from refusing to move inside until I d finished the book, I regret nothing I thought the way this explored history specifically that of Japanese Americans and the period of Japanese internment camps was superb Not only did it dive into a piece of history I ve not seen discussed in YA, it did it in a way that was accessible and proved how greatly the past still continues to negatively impact the lives of people tod Wow This Book Is Excellent. 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 am a humble bisexual I see a pretty girl on the cover I want to read book with pretty girl on the cover. UPDATE Always trust book covers featuring pretty girls They haven t failed me yet ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Blessed
Video review î This Time Will Be Different ì This somehow did so much than I expected it to, even though I guess the cover copy is clear what it s about, but there was justso much that was so good I definitely came away learning a lot about Japanese internment and its aftereffects than I remember absorbing from high school, but I think the way CJ was coming from a family that historically hadn t reallyprospered in the area of romantic love and the ways both that and her own past kind of shut down her heart was really lovely too I love when characters are formed by their experiences, by nature and nurture, and I think Sugiura nailed all the different kinds of things that build who we are and how they come into our lives, from outside factors like bigotry s effect on economics to things we don t even realize we re observing I also just really love how everyone, ohh no no no no no i was trying too hard to be funny and jumped right into weird sighMe every time I try to eat gummy bears and then ten minutes later poop my guts Meh Never Quit But Seventeen Year Old CJ Doesn T Even Know Where To Start She S Never Lived Up To Her Mom S Type A Ambition, And She S Perfectly Happy Just Helping Her Aunt, Hannah, At Their Family S Flower ShopShe Doesn T Buy Into Hannah S Romantic Ideas About Flowers And Their Hidden Meanings, But When It Comes To Arranging The Perfect Bouquet, CJ Discovers A Knack She Never Knew She Had A Skill She Might Even Be Proud OfThen ð read å This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura ð Her Mom Decides To Sell The Shop To The Family Who Swindled CJ S Grandparents When Thousands Of Japanese Americans Were Sent To Internment Camps During WWII Soon A Rift Threatens To Splinter CJ S Family, Friends, And Their Entire Northern California Community And For The First Time, CJ Has Found Something She Wants To Fight For
