I did really like this novel. One of the most interesting books from this author. I wish the ending could have showed a little bit of the reunion between the friends. I also didn't like some stereotyping of Muslim people (one part specifically) but I understood where the author was going with it. Overall a good read and I loved the bond between the friends.

Pleasantly surprised

This book was heartbreaking in a lot of ways. It certainly makes you face with all the privileges you have. There were so many bad reviews about the audio book that I nearly didnt use my credit on this one. It turned out to be a moving and well written story about a mother and daughter, their different lives and experiences and their struggles to understand each other. Margo's mission was to figure out whether or not her mother's death was an accident upon discovering her body. The book revolves around Margo on her quest as well as past chapters which describe Mina's (her mother) experience in her first few years living in Koreatown in LA in the 80s and 90s. The descriptions of the food were mouth watering. I also felt like the relationships between characters were believable and realistic.
I am giving it 4 stars because there were some parts of the plot that I found slow-moving and a little hard to get through. Also, the narrator for the audio book tried her best but sometimes used odd voices for the characters.

The narrator did a good job. But the story itself was quite boring and hard to get into. All the story lines were predictable... Not my cup of tea. Loved the authors first book but this one and her second just not as enjoyable.
