I love this book and and the story of May/Masako. What a beautiful, strong and courageous woman she was, to follow her own path and heart's desires, but she does not cut off her family, or her options. She simply follows her own path, and finds her place in the world. I love how skillful the storytelling is, how incredibly complex feelings and decisions are presented clearly, how easy it is to relate to this incredible young woman! I think anyone who is different, and seeks their own path, regardless of age, will appreciate this book. It's not just for people in dual cultures, or living outside of their birth country. It's for anyone who seeks a a happy life for themselves. The art is gorgeous.
The illustrations are so beautiful. My children (5 of them) are growing in a country other than their passport country so they loved it too. I downloaded it to read to my 5 yr. old but my 10 and 11 year old kids loved it too! A. Say's books are great for TCKs!
Great for third culture people (people who have grown up with more than one "native culture").
