Praise for It's Not Like It's A Secret

Sugiura thoughtfully explores intersecting issues of race, immigrant-family relationships, queer romance, and, less explicitly, class dynamics without implying the significance of one over the others. Well-paced, brimming with drama, and utterly vital.
— Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Smart, funny, messily authentic and sweetly romantic.
— Kelly Loy Gilbert, Morris Award nominated author of CONVICTION
A touching coming of age book that kept me cheering until the end; will be highly recommending!
