Author Emiko Jean keeps the light, genuine tone going in this romantic sequel. Tokyo Dreaming picks right up where Tokyo Ever After left off, and romance fans will enjoy narrator Izumi's heartache and happiness as she continues to navigate life in the Japanese Imperial family.

Izumi's love life, and the romance between her parents, are at the forefront of this story, and both story lines are sigh-worthy. Teens will relate to Izumi's struggles to figure out where her interests -- and her heart -- lie. And they'll root for her as she struggles to live up to expectations while staying true to herself.
