"Sushi for One? is an entertaining romp into the world of multi-culturalism. I loved learning the idiosyncrasies of Lexs crazy familywhich were completely universal. Enjoy!" Kristen Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants "In Lex Sakai, Camy Tang gives us a funny, plucky, volleyball-playing heroine with way too many balls in the air. I defy anyone to start reading and not root for Lex all the way to the storys romantic, super-satisfying end." Trish Perry, author of The Guy Im Not Dating Lex Sakais family is big, nosy, and marriage-minded. When her cousin Mariko gets married, Lex will become the oldest single cousin in the clan. Lex has used her Bible study class on Ephesians to compile a huge list of traits for the perfect man. But the one man she keeps running into doesnt seem to have a single quality on her list. Its only when the always-in-control Lex starts to let God take over that all the pieces of this hilarious romance finally fall into place.

ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome Book!March 4, 2015ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I could not have asked for a better book. Camy Tang is a phenomenal writer! The dialogue was entertaining and had me laughing out loud. Lex Sakai is a character to be reckoned with. She is strong, stubborn, and determined to make her way in the world, regardless of what her grandmother thinks is best for her. Aiden is patient, caring, and a bit close-minded (in the beginning). I loved watching their relationship blossom. I loved watching Aiden's relationship with the Lord blossom as well. Camy didn't make it feel rushed and she showed us, through side characters, how sitting back and listening and really trying to connect with the other person can open their eyes to the Lord.
The story, itself, was absolutely fantastic. I loved getting a look into the Japanese and Chinese cultures. It was interesting to see how Japanese Americans and Chinese Americans still practice some of their cultural norms. The message of the book is waiting on the Lord and seeking Him in all areas of our lives. Trust him with everything. Be patient and wait on Him. It was phenomenal to see how Lex's decisions affected her life and at the end she realized she made her life harder than it had to be. I absolutely loved it. I can't say enough great things about this book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next books in the series, Sushi Series.

Sushi Series Book 1
Alexis Sakai's life has just taken a few unexpected turns. The biggest one is that her grandma has declared she gets a serious boyfriend or else. And yes, her grandma has the power to enforce or else. Lex finds that going against Grandma can be like trying to climb a waterfall. She does keep running into one guy but he just don't fit her list of what she wants in a man.
This story is both serious and humorous. Four cousins have become Christians and they still struggle with their new beliefs at times. This series is about these four gals and their struggles with life and family. As the next four oldest single girls they are in the sights of the family. And it's a very, very large family. I find the story to be captivating and held my attention so it was hard to put it down.
Book 1.1 is The Sushi Toss, which is a short, free read on Camy Tang's blog. The Series continues with Trish's story in Only Uni, Venus's tale in Single Sashimi and finishes with Jennifer in Weddings and Wasabi.
