Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Brenda St John Brown is a displaced New Yorker living in the English countryside. She hasn't quite adapted to the idea of fireworks in November (despite now being a dual US/UK citizen), but she knows not to call trousers pants & often finds herself saying things are lovely...a word that never crossed her lips until she passed through UK immigration. She writes YA & NA fiction. When she's not writing, Brenda loves running, reading and traveling, & talking about Greek mythology with her son.

I loved the way the conflict was written. I can't even describe it, but I'll try. Zosia and Finn have both had hard lives, Finn more so than Zosia, but they're both trying. They fail and freak out and do the wrong thing, but they're giving it a go and I loved that about this book. They didn't get in fights that lasted a week because of a mis-communication, they may walk away from each other and act like idiots, but they eventually made it right.
I loved the tension between the two leads and the slow burn of the romance.
The only thing I felt that was lacking was the development of the supporting characters. Zosia's dad was a weak "villain." He's definitely not an actual villain, per se, but he doesn't agree with her choices and seems to only exist to create conflict in that respect. I would have like to have seen his relationship develop more with Zosia, Eloise, and Finn.
There's a lot of Japanese and Polish words in this book and I love how the author didn't explain every little thing to the reader as if they've never read a book before and don't know how context clues work.
Finn is totally a believable damaged character. These characters are so well written. This book is actually good contrast to Lost and Found. Where Lost and Found's damaged characters seemed 2-dimensional and not well thought out, Swimming to Tokyo's Zosia and Finn were the opposite.
You know how many times I rolled my eyes while reading this? Zero. And I'm an eye roller.
