One of PEOPLE Magazine''s Best Books of Summer!
"I absolutely adored this funny, fierce, big-hearted book.”  
—Morgan Matson, New York Times bestselling author of Save the Date

Celebrated author Sarah Kuhn reinvents the modern fairy tale in this intensely personal yet hilarious novel of a girl whose search for a storybook ending takes her to unexpected places in both her beloved LA neighborhood and her own guarded heart.

If Rika''s life seems like the beginning of a familiar fairy tale—being an orphan with two bossy cousins and working away in her aunts'' business—she would be the first to reject that foolish notion. After all, she loves her family (even if her cousins were named after Disney characters), and with her biracial background, amazing judo skills and red-hot temper, she doesn''t quite fit the princess mold.

All that changes the instant she locks eyes with Grace Kimura, America''s reigning rom-com sweetheart, during the Nikkei Week Festival. From there, Rika embarks on a madcap adventure of hope and happiness—searching for clues that Grace is her long-lost mother, exploring Little Tokyo''s hidden treasures with cute actor Hank Chen, and maybe . . . finally finding a sense of belonging.

But fairy tales are fiction and the real world isn''t so kind. Rika knows she''s setting herself up for disappointment, because happy endings don''t happen to girls like her. Should she walk away before she gets in even deeper, or let herself be swept away?
Sarah Kuhn is the author of the popular Heroine Complex novels—a series starring Asian American superheroines. The first book is a Locus bestseller, an RT Reviewers'' Choice Award nominee, and one of the Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog''s Best Books of 2016. Her YA debut, the Japan-set romantic comedy I Love You...
