This is the sequel to Southern Fried Sushi, and it was just as good as the first book. Like Sweet Potato Pie picks up where Southern Fried Sushi ended, following Shiloh’s life in Staunton, VA. It is a great look at an outsider’s view on Southern life.
In Like Sweet Potato Pie, Shiloh has to face more consequences of spending so much money trying to fit in when she lived in Japan. But she won’t face those consequences alone. With friends around her to encourage her and question her, Shiloh finds her footing in this new time in her life.
This book is filled with love, friendship, and what it means to be there for other people. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to curl up with a good read.
