Sushi For One? by Camy Tang, book review

Sushi For One?
by Camy Tang

  Sushi for One? is a story about Lexi Sakai, an Asian American who is torn between family tradition and her own independence. Lexi is going to be the eldest unmarried cousin in her family and her grandmother wants her to find a man and settle down. Lexi wants to be left alone and date at her own pace, which is basically stagnant, but her grandmother will cut off funding to the volleyball team if Lexi doesn’t have a man by then. The list she has of qualities she is looking for in a man grows longer at each date. At the top of that list is for him to be a Christian, as well someone who doesn’t put the moves on her or stiff her with the check. When she meets Aiden, she feels attracted to him, but he thinks a lot of Christians are hypocrites and is not sure he wants to be part of her church. They still manage to get along pretty well and he is the only one who has been able to get close to her without her wincing or running from her memories of the past.
 Lexi is an excellent volleyball player and is in great physical shape, but has a weak stomach and tends to whine when she gets hurt. I really liked the book, until she hurt her knee; It then became a bit awkward and seemed to fizzle a bit.
 I did like the book, and you may also, so I suggest you give it a try.
