Himawari House by: Harmony Becker

Summary: "When Nao returns to Tokyo to reconnect with her Japanese heritage, she books a yearlong stay at the Himawari sharehouse. There she meets Hyejung and Tina, two other girls who came to Japan to freely forge their own paths. The trio live together, share meals, and even attend the same Japanese-language school, which results in them becoming fast friends. But will they be able to hold one another up as life tests them with new loves, old heart breaks, and the everyday challenges of being fish out of water?"--Provided by publisher.

Patron Review:

This book explores the story of Nao, a Japanese American girl trying to reclaim her culture by traveling back to her home country for a year.  She moves to Himawari house, where she befriends her roommates Tina and Hyejung.  Nao struggles to learn Japanese and fit into a country she feels is no longer her own, but her friends are there to help her along!

This is a RF/GN which explores culture, friendship, and relationships.  I loved this book because of the humor, the beautiful art, and relatable characters.  I would strongly recommend this for anyone looking for a humorous easy read.
