    Description

    "I'm here to take you to live with your father. In Tokyo, Japan! Happy birthday!

    In the Land of the Rising Sun, where high culture meets high kitsch, and fashion and technology are at the forefront of the First World's future, the foreign-born teen elite attend ICS - the International Collegiate School of Tokyo. Their accents are fluid. Their homes are ridiculously posh. Their sports games often involve a (private) plane trip to another country. They miss school because of jet lag and visa issues. When they get in trouble, they seek diplomatic immunity.

    Enter foster-kid-out-of-water Elle Zoellner, who, on her 16th birthday discovers that her long-lost father, Kenji Takahara, is actually a Japanese hotel mogul and wants her to come live with him. Um, yes, please! Elle jets off first class from Washington, DC, to Tokyo, which seems like a dream come true. Until she meets her enigmatic father, her way-too-fab aunt, and her hypercritical grandmother, who seems to wish Elle didn't exist. In an effort to please her new family, Elle falls in with the Ex-Brats, a troupe of ubercool international kids who spend money like it's air. But when she starts to crush on a boy named Ryuu, who's frozen out by the Brats and despised by her new family, her already tenuous living situation just might implode.

    My Almost Flawless Tokyo Dream Life is about learning what it is to be a family and finding the inner strength to be yourself, even in the most extreme circumstances.

    Couldn’t stop listening.

    I want to start out with I’m a grown adult women, but when I started this book I had the understanding that the main character was a TEENAGE girl and wasn’t annoyed by her annoying tendencies because I once was a annoying teenage girl. I read other reviews on this book and seen people talk about how this girl is and how she’s acting, but forgets this is a peek into a newly 16 year old girls life. Yes the other Characters didn’t have have much growth but it was fine, it wasn’t about her friends or school mates. It was about her and her father, I wish there was more because there was more to be explained.. but it was a good story and worth the read if you keep in mind it’s about teenagers not grown women

    Terrible

    The main character swore a lot, and she was teaching her neighbor how to speak English by swearing. The main character was a brat, and ex-pacts will be the opposite of this character if you listen to this book. The only good thing about this book was calling addiction "the Beast."

    Woah that accent...

    The story was interesting but my goodness that butchering of Japanese was rough to listen to. I knew I was gonna be in for it when the narrator kept saying Tokio vs Tokyo. It was to the point where I was wondering if the main characters first friend was actually African and not Japanese. I think if the narrator would have just kept with American pronunciation vs trying to do an accent it would be less distracting.

    Such a bad accent

    The story was great; intriguing, even. The narrator was great for everything except her horrendously terrible Japanese.
