Tokyo Ever After

A Novel

Tokyo Ever After

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed The Princess Diaries, Volume I: The Princess Diaries, then you’ll love Tokyo Ever After.

The Princess Diaries meets the Amanda Bynes movie What a Girl Wants in this delightful YA rom com set primarily in Tokyo, Japan. Izumi is such a wonderful character who acts just as you would expect a teenager to when being thrown into royalty for the first time, in a new country, while also trying to cultivate a relationship with your long-lost father....and possibly your super cute bodyguard.”

Description

The Princess Diaries meets Crazy Rich Asians in Emiko Jean’s Tokyo Ever After, a “refreshing, spot-on” (Booklist, starred review) story of an ordinary Japanese-American girl who discovers that her father is the Crown Prince of Japan.

Izumi Tanaka has never really felt like she fit in—it isn’t easy being Japanese American in her small, mostly white, northern California town. Raised by a single mother, it’s always been Izumi—or Izzy, because “It’s easier this way”—and her mom against the world. But then Izumi discovers a clue to her previously unknown father’s identity…and he’s none other than the Crown Prince of Japan. Which means outspoken, irreverent Izzy is literally a princess.

In a whirlwind, Izumi travels to Japan to meet the father she never knew and discover the country she always dreamed of. But being a princess isn’t all ball gowns and tiaras. There are conniving cousins, a hungry press, a scowling but handsome bodyguard who just might be her soulmate, and thousands of years of tradition and customs to learn practically overnight.

Izumi soon finds herself caught between worlds, and between versions of herself—back home, she was never “American” enough, and in Japan, she must prove she’s “Japanese” enough. Will Izumi crumble under the weight of the crown, or will she live out her fairy tale, happily ever after?

Look for the sequel to Tokyo Ever After in 2022!

A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

“Despite the swoon-worthy love interest and glittering palaces, Tokyo Ever After is not your typical princess story. Izumi is a spunky, irreverent, lovable narrator who struggles to reconcile her American upbringing with her Japanese heritage. A fresh and distinctly modern fairy tale.”—Katharine McGee, New York Times bestselling author of American Royals

"A refreshing and spot-on depiction of Japanese Americans exploring their heritage, with appeal far beyond female Asian readers." —Booklist, starred review
