    The whole "naive, prudish, younger narrator telling the story of their older, wilder sibling/friend" thing is a trope that's totally overdone in coming-of-age stories, but one I pretty much love every time. But then I'm always disappointed by the "now it's 20 years later and we're Dealing With Our Issues" part of the story. So I loved the 1976 half of this book and was kinda bored with the present-day half.

    This is an interesting story of two Korean-American sisters and their often strained relationship. It switches between present day and 1976, when the protagonist was 14. It is an interesting look at how Asian Americans were viewed in the late 70's and the struggle between sisters and their grief.

    It was ok. A bit too whoodoo and metaphysical nonsense for me, but a decent story of sisters. I really didn't get why Marcy cared so much about Cleo. Cleo seemed to be a selfish jerk and completely unlikeable, and Marcy is milquetoast.
