Here is my review of this terrific teen novel:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Nancy Rue and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Motorcycles, Sushi & One Strange Book" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

After my daughter read and enjoyed Nancy Rue’s “Boyfriends, Burritos and an Ocean of Trouble”, I had to get her a copy of Nancy’s other extremely witty title for teens: “Motorcycles, Sushi and One Strange Book”. Jessie Hatcher’s life is anything but “normal”. When she’s uprooted from her mother’s home to live with her father, her life is completely shaken up. And not just because she thought her father was dead!

This novel is an incredibly engaging read for teens. Nancy Rue has a knack for identifying with young women, which is evidenced by this book and her other writings. Jessie’s story enlightens young girls to circumstances of which they may not be aware. It is also an incredible adventure that teens will recognize with on many levels.
