Editorial Reviews

Review

★ “Sugiura tackles an abundance of topics with finesse, including social and economic injustice, allyship, and feminism, simultaneously breaking down the Asian-American immigration narrative and the myth of the model minority. Essential.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

★ “A gripping, emotionally charged story that presents a window into a uniquely Japanese American experience.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

★“With intelligent dialogue surrounding diversity, representation and responsible social action, This Time Will Be Different is a timely, smart novel that readers of contemporary teen fiction will likely devour.” (Shelf Awareness (starred review))

★ “Sugiura deftly weaves historical fact into this coming-of-age narrative, providing an entertaining and informative backdrop that allows CJ to explore her own sense of identity while giving readers a front seat to her process.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Fresh, vibrant, affecting and powerful.” (New York Times Book Review )

“One of the most authentic, steadfastly real teen characters I’ve read in recent memory. CJ deals with racism, familial strife, and finding herself with a charm and grace I couldn’t get enough of. Her pitch-perfect voice leaped off the page and stayed with me. Highly, highly recommend.” (Sandhya Menon, New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi)

“At turns delightfully humorous and wonderfully insightful. The cultural nuances were perfect, and I found myself utterly transported. I can’t wait to read what Sugiura writes next.” (Renée Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn)

“Insightful. Intricate. Honest. With richly drawn characters that feel utterly real, Misa Sugiura reminds us that the past is always present, but that we hold the power to shape our future, if we’re brave enough to face it.” (Samira Ahmed, New York Times bestselling author of Love, Hate & Other Filters and Internment)

“An engaging picture of a girl facing the past—both her family’s and her own—in service of her future.” (Horn Book Magazine)

“Refreshingly complex. An astute look at privilege, power, and history in sometimes unexpected forms.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
