Diary of a Tokyo Teen: A Japanese-American Girl Travels to the Land of Trendy Fashion, High-Tech Toilets and Maid Cafes by Christine Mari Inzer


I lived in Japan for a summer and taught English, so when I saw this book at the school that I teach at I had to read it.

The main character was born in Tokyo and raised there for her first couple years of life. Her mother is Japanese and grew up in Japan and her father is American. The summer before she turned sixteen, she returned to Tokyo to visit her grandparents by herself. This book shares images, drawings and stories from that summer.
