      Book Review: Sideways: Memoir of a Misfit By Norm Masaji Ibuki / 7 Jul When I was growing up, my family aspired to meet the “model minority” myth that was set up to direct how we Nikkei should think of ourselves and live within the Canadian context.   "The best, the funniest and the most heartfelt memoir of the year. Sigh, Gone filters the archetypal high school misfit story through the lens of immigration and assimilation, building it into a larger narrative about the ways music and books can bring us together, even when the larger world threatens to tear us apart." ―BookPage (starred 5/5(8).
