    Description

    "Narrator Ali Ahn gives this young adult rom-com fun doses of personality and sass...Ahn's accents and Japanese pronunciations ring true as she clearly differentiates characters of different ages and nationalities." (AudioFile Magazine)

    A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club YA pick!

    The Princess Diaries meets Crazy Rich Asians in Emiko Jean’s Tokyo Ever After, a “refreshing, spot-on” (Booklist, starred review) story of an ordinary Japanese-American girl who discovers that her father is the Crown Prince of Japan.

    Izumi Tanaka has never really felt like she fit in - it isn’t easy being Japanese American in her small, mostly white, northern California town. Raised by a single mother, it’s always been Izumi - or Izzy, because “It’s easier this way” - and her mom against the world. But then Izumi discovers a clue to her previously unknown father’s identity…and he’s none other than the Crown Prince of Japan. Which means outspoken, irreverent Izzy is literally a princess.

    In a whirlwind, Izumi travels to Japan to meet the father she never knew and discover the country she always dreamed of. But being a princess isn’t all ball gowns and tiaras. There are conniving cousins, a hungry press, a scowling but handsome bodyguard who just might be her soulmate, and thousands of years of tradition and customs to learn practically overnight.

    Izumi soon finds herself caught between worlds, and between versions of herself- back home, she was never “American” enough, and in Japan, she must prove she’s “Japanese” enough. Will Izumi crumble under the weight of the crown, or will she live out her fairy tale, happily ever after?

    Look for the sequel to Tokyo Ever After in 2022!

    Incroyable

    Le travail d’écriture, linguistique est de lecture est énorme. En tant qu’amoureuse de la culture japonaise, ça a d’autant plus été un plaisir de l’écouter et en apprendre plus sur la culture japonaise
    Comme tout enfant d’immigrant en pays occidental, ce questionnement de double identité est omniprésent et la façon dont il est abordé dans le livre est très exacte. Je me suis peut-être trouvée une nouvelle auteure favorite

    Delightful

    This is a perfect summer binge. It’s a light story with humor and heart, expertly narrated by Ali Ahn. (Narrators have a hard job, people.) I definitely recommend.

    A great coming of age YA novel

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator was amazing. It was light and also meaningful. It was also a lot of fun to listen to. I really enjoyed the main character and the relationships she had with the various characters in the book. The ending was also super sweet. I look forward to the next book!

    A fun read. Could use more character development.

    you only get the surface area from the personalities of the characters. decent story line. fun read though.

    A light, breezy, summer read!

    This book is the perfect recipe of whit, fun, love & character growth. It’s wrapped up in a lovely bow emphasizing the importance of being one’s self with a strong thread of equality and feminism. Highly recommend this after a year of international hardship and challenging times across the board. Happy reading! (Great narration*).

    Loved this Ya read!

    However the best friends voice by the reader is the WORST. In general the female voices unless their sup to be depicted as calm women are grating.

    Cute

    This book was cute and I love how you’re transported to japan and to mount shasta. I just wish there was a little more development between the main character and her love interest.

    Phenomenal book

    Perfect cute story about finding where you belong. The narrator did a great job the only criticism I had was she didn't change her inflection to differentiate between Izumi's thoughts and dialogue which was a tad confusing.

    Great simple, cute story!

    This was a wonderful book that I feel should be made into a movie! It was simple yet, I mean in the sense of more for a young teen, and a classic princess story that is in line with Penelope, Princess Diaries etc. and introduces a reader to another cultural world.

    I loved it and cannot wait to read the next in the series.

    Entertaining enough

    The style was more teen than I expected, and struggled with it especially in the beginning, but I recognize I'm overaged for this story so I'll take that into account. The Japanese pronunciation of the narrator was often painful, I wish the reader was more fluent. Also I'm a little sceptical if Japanese culture was realistically portrayed at several points, starting from whether a non-Japanese-speaking out-of-wedlock-born princess would actually be this well received. I fear the reality would be grimmer. Still entertaining enough as a light summer listen so I listened to the end.
