* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)

Three young Asian women become housemates in Japan, while they work, take Japanese classes, and plan for the future. Nao is Japanese American, Hyejung is from Korea, and Tina is from Singapore. They grow closer as they get to know each other – sharing food, feelings, and friendship as they try to figure out where they fit in the world. This should appeal to anyone who is curious about Japan, interested in Japanese culture, living abroad, Being Asian, finding your own path, forming your own identity, realistic fiction. Rich in feels and very much recommended.
