2010 Book Review #12 "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet"
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
4 out of 5
First of all my life has been super busy, and hectic so it took much longer for me to read it than it really should have!
I loved this book.
I loved all the relationships.
The love relationships
The loyal Relationships
The family relationships
The protection relationships
The bully relationships
The love of a mother relationship
The acceptance relationships
and yes even the nonacceptance relationship.
This book takes place in Seattle starting right after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The main character, Henry is Chinese and his relationship with everyone around him, especially a Japanese girl, Keiko.
The book is written in a way that you're reading about the events in 1986 and 1942.
