Midori by Moonlight: 06/09/15
Midori by Moonlight by Wendy Nelson Tokuaga is set in San Francisco. Midori, a young Japanese woman has come to the United States believing she has an offer of marriage. But the man was just sweet-talking her and now she's at a loss.
Midori's situation could have given the opportunity to explore cultural differences and to see how her character adapts. Unfortunately, every opportunity is squandered. Midori is a mere caricature of a Japanese woman. Her unfortunate set of circumstances are played up for jokes on her "Engrish" and her complete cluelessness.
I couldn't get beyond the first couple of chapters.
