4⭐ #WomensPrizeFictionLongList

Another good but not great read for this years prize. I think at this point it is just my attitude that is the problem. This book has all the right things - lots about language, social, financial diversity and analysis. A girl half American, half Chinese trying to figure out the world as she is raised in China by her American single mom. Something just fell flat for me, I struggled to care about picking the book up

ChaoticMissAdventures 4⭐ though because all the right elements are here, and I think it just didn't connect with me at this moment in time. 3mo
BarbaraBB Great review. I am reading it now and feeling the same 3mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @BarbaraBB it is just missing something? Or maybe my hopes are too high? I cannot decide. 3mo
BarbaraBB I feel a bit like I‘ve read this story already, just with different characters in a different setting. I felt the same about Nightbloom. Maybe it‘s us, spoilt readers, but then again, this is the Women Prize! (edited) 3mo
