Happy Birthday or Whatever: Track Suits, Kim Chee, and Other Family Disasters
by Annie Choi
This book took a little longer to read only cause I only had time during lunch which isn't that much time to begin with. But I finally finished it end of last week. I've just been slacking in writing about it, not because I didn't like the book but because well I haven't had time. So about the book it's a memoir about a Korean woman and her family. There are some cute stories in here, I didn't find it as hilarious as some of the other reviews but that might be because I'm not Korean. All in all good book.
2.5 out of 5.

This is the first book by this author that I have read and it will not be the last. The idea of this book was great, Lizzie just died and it tells of her going to another place called Elsewhere where people live after they die instead of getting older or staying the same age they get younger and when they become babies they go back to Earth and are reborn. It's a great story about a girl realizing that she was happy in life and can also be happy in death. I think if I was ever to die I really do hope there is an Elsewhere out there. Fascinating tale and in my opinion very touching at times.
4 out of 5 stars.
