I have to start off by saying I was really looking forward to this..... about a young girl struggling with culture identity as a Korean in America. The plot twist twist was completely unnecessary. It's fine but it didn't add anything to the story. The revelation wasn't delved into or any background information provided. It's literally a page or two of actual information and then that's it. If they have focused more on that twist since it *was *so monumental, I probably would have enjoyed it better.

Instead it ends up being a book about two girls being friends. There's a bit on how to fit in and how teachers relate to their students but that kinda gets lost in the shuffle.

This is going to be a book students go "huh" and they will either LOVE it or remain confused. I don't think most teachers will promote it at all. Adults don't usually like it when you blend genres.

When Chloe gets a big fat F on her family history paper she finally confronts her parents and learns the shocking truth about her family history. She's not Korean after all.
