My Almost Flawless Tokyo Dream Life

We rated this book:


All Elle Zoellner wants for her sweet sixteenth is a shower. Her cat is dead, her best friend moved, her mother is on probation, and her father is who-knows-where. Life sucks.

Cue the fairy god-uncle.

Suddenly, Elle is whisked away to Tokyo where her long lost, rich businessman of a father is waiting. Elle is given a whole new chance at life—a life where she is popular, beautiful, rolling in money, and a part of the elite, but when family issues arise and Elle starts crushing on the wrong person; her perfect life might backfire.

As someone interested in Japanese culture, I found this book to be entertaining and even educational. It was fun to read about the spunky main character and learn a little bit about Tokyo’s culture as well. I especially thought that the dialogue was on-point—the author is hip to millennial slang. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun (but improbable) read.

My Almost Flawless Tokyo Dream Life is a story about being whom you want to be, even when life throws up in your face.
