This book is one of the best books I have ever read! It was one of those books that you can't put down! There was no good place to stop! I finished it quickly and I wish there was a second book, but too bad for me. I personally love dogs so that part of this book was great. Overall this was an AWESOME book! :)

If a Jenny Han book had a younger sister -- it would be this middle grade debut from Debbi Michiko Florence. Keiko's story was comparable to Lara Jean's in so many good ways. Not that this is a copycat, younger version of "To All the Boys. . ." This new MG novel is a read-alike that will make Jenny Han's style seem like a new friend you connect with instantly. Keiko's story does such a great job of showing the ups and downs of middle school friendship. The addition of dog rescue and basketball to the plot broadens the appeal for readers. I loved Keiko's obsession with chocolate. She and I would enjoy building a chocolate stash together. As Keiko matures through the story and learns more about herself, she is equipped to make better choices as well. Really well done!
