Book Review: The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Original blurb published on January 1, 2012.

Loved this book! I read it with my book club, and it led to some really interesting discussion of how Chinese, Japanese, and American parenting are different. It it set during World War II and tells the story of a young Chinese boy and his friendship with a Japanese girl, who is eventually "relocated." You won't find this one in the YA section, but I definitely recommend it.
