Holly Thompson

In the wake of a tragedy at her high school, Kana Goldberg, a half-Japanese half-Jewish American teen, travels to Japan to stay with family she has never met and to help tend their orange groves. While trying to make sense of what happened at school and her role in it, she navigates through an unfamiliar culture, which she can nonetheless claim as her own. This novel-in-verse is a quick read but a meaningful one.
