Honolulu by Alan Brennert
This book instantly had my attention. It's beautifully written and so in depth that you feel you are going right along with Jin. At the same time, it's so horribly tragic; to go from nothing to just another country's nothing...these girls know no one, they have been horribly mislead and have just about no means to go back home even if they wanted to. Its great to see them embrace a new culture so whole-heartedly, even through the deep-seated racism and discrimination. These women raise themselves to something that they can be proud of!
