Beschreibung

This charming and bittersweet coming-of-age story featuring two girls of color falling in love is part To All the Boys I've Loved Before and part Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

Sixteen-year-old Sana Kiyohara has too many secrets. Some are small, like how it bothers her when her friends don’t invite her to parties. Some are big, like the fact that her father may be having an affair. And then there’s the one that she can barely even admit to herself—the one about how she might have a crush on her best friend.

When Sana and her family move to California, she begins to wonder if it’s finally time for some honesty, especially after she meets Jamie Ramirez. Jamie is beautiful and smart and unlike anyone Sana’s ever known. There are just a few problems: Sana's new friends don't trust Jamie's crowd; Jamie's friends clearly don't want her around anyway; and a sweet guy named Caleb seems to have more-than-friendly feelings for her. Meanwhile, her dad’s affair is becoming too obvious to ignore.

Sana always figured that the hardest thing would be to tell people that she wants to date a girl, but as she quickly learns, telling the truth is easy...what comes after it, though, is a whole lot more complicated.

A HarperAudio production.

    It's Not Like It's a Secret is a thoroughly enjoyable teen romance. Sixteen year old Sana and her family move from Wisconsin, where she was one of a handful of Asian students at school, to California where she is one of many. In Wisconsin she had a crush on her best friend, Trisha, who is totally straight and her crush is hopeless.In California she meets Jamie who is a clerk in a store and it's crush at first sight. Jamie is Latino. Author Misa Sugiura explores the difference in cultures and stereotypical perceptions such as Latinos are lazy and Asians are smart and hardworking. Sana's mother, a Japanese born American, also shares these opinions of Latinos, thus making it hard for Sana and Jamie to become friends, let alone girlfriends. Sana's mother is stoic, showing gamen (enduring the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity) and there are things in her life that require such strength.Of course, like any other romance, there is girl gets girl, girl loses girl and girl gets girl back again. However this version was a joy to read. I highly recommend it.

    I really liked the audiobook, but if Sona was real I wouldn't like her. Too closed up haha.

    This book is about a girl who becomes aware of the stereotypes and racism that goes between different groups and how it warrants people to make others liable. It is about cheating and how complicated it is after a closer look, especially within a complex situation. It is about a how she grows and works hard to fight for the people and the relationship she wants to keep despite all of these. It is about her finding love and happiness and realizing her true self.

    This one really hit too close to home. I relate to Sana in terms of her family and the treatment toward her and others, at school etc and her sexuality. Im basically her. But what I really like about it are the characters and the resolution. Yes it is a bit tidy at the end but I just love how supportive her friends are and how her family evolved, became closer and grew together. And how she grew as a person. And of course, the romance. I enjoyed it and was all for them even if it started out insta lovey. Also the poems are a bonus! I really like this book. Its like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Its heavy on the topics but satisfying all together.

    P.S.
    Miss Zeller did a spectacular job narrating this book. She's such a dynamic and versatile voice actress. And her take on the 'This is How You Lose the Time War' was sexy af.
