I've been finished studying for the Michigan bar exam for a few weeks now. Time to catch up on reading!
I just finished “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” by Jamie Ford. A very good novel with some historical events taking place around the fictional story. The main character is Henry, a 12 year old Chinese boy living in the outskirts of Seattle. He attends school at an all-white elementary school and is bullied by the older and bigger boys. Then, a Japanese girl becomes a student at Henry's school and they become fast friends. Most of the story is told in the 1940s but the book jumps to the 1980s, and then back again.
I liked this story. You could call it a romance, drama and historical fiction. The author does a good job with telling the story and had me keeping the pages turning to see what develops.
