The first book in debut author Tang's Sushi series is fun, yet surprisingly poignant. Lex is an interesting character, and her grandma is definitely frustrating! Many unique elements come together -- including clashing family members and a volleyball-enthused protagonist -- for an absorbing tale
of finding love in the city.

When Lex Sakai's cousin Mariko announces her upcoming marriage, Lex knows she's in for some trouble. Grandma Sakai isn't about to allow Lex to sit back and enjoy her single status for much longer. Grandma lays down an ultimatum to Lex about finding a boyfriend, and Lex is frustrated about what to do. She tries to engineer some relationships, but the only person who seems to be interested is Aiden, who isn't a Christian. Can Lex trust that God will work out the details of her life?
