About this ebook

“Sushi for One? is an entertaining romp into the world of multi-culturalism. I loved learning the idiosyncrasies of Lex’s crazy family—which were completely universal. Enjoy!” —Kristen Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants “In Lex Sakai, Camy Tang gives us a funny, plucky, volleyball-playing heroine with way too many balls in the air. I defy anyone to start reading and not root for Lex all the way to the story’s romantic, super-satisfying end.” —Trish Perry, author of The Guy I’m Not Dating Lex Sakai’s family is big, nosy, and marriage-minded. When her cousin Mariko gets married, Lex will become the oldest single cousin in the clan. Lex has used her Bible study class on Ephesians to compile a huge list of traits for the perfect man. But the one man she keeps running into doesn’t seem to have a single quality on her list. It’s only when the always-in-control Lex starts to let God take over that all the pieces of this hilarious romance finally fall into place.

    A few too many worn plot twists to be really good. The guy the protagonist likes becomes a Christian. Certain family members seem one-dimensional. Too many "bad things" happen and are not really dealt with.

    I think it's great though that this novel explores Japanese and Chinese culture and how Christianity fits in with it. I just believe it deserved a better plot and ending

    It's a little complicated, this whole business regarding Lex Sakai's becoming (or avoiding becoming?) the oldest single female cousin in her family. Her quest of multiple objectives in Sushi for One? by author Camy Tang takes a lot of turns, and I, while reading about it, had to hang on for the ride.The novel's opening, and several other moments along the way, had me laughing out loud, and I took to the heroine right away: funny, flawed, sometimes rash about the mouth, tomboyish, passionate about sports, with a figure folks criticize for not being curvy enough--whatever that is. (Hey, lithe women are beautiful, too!) The story's romance is well paced, and the volleyball sequences put me in the mood for the Summer Olympics. In the mood to watch them, that is.There are a lot of mishaps and spillings, the theme concerning Lex's sensitive stomach makes for some "disgustamundo" parts, and most of the zany characters who sail through, and some who reappear, aren't exactly likable. (Which is part of the story's point, granted.) But genuine displays of friendship and family loyalty through painful experience put me in tears. Real tears that required me to pause from reading for a while.I've got to read more of the Sushi Series.

    Who rules the roost in this Asian family? Grandma, of course, and she wants Lex to get serious about finding a boyfriend and/or husband ASAP or she will pull her financial support of Lex's volleyball team. Every cousin tries to set her up with some guy because Grandma is pulling the strings. We are treated to the saga of Lex's job changes, housing changes, family squabbles and personal tragedies. She wants a Christian man. Can she ever find one before the volleyball season is over? It's a fast read and a sweet story. My thanks to the author and Goodreads for a complimentary copy
