Vanessa Yu’s Magical Paris Tea Shop

by Roselle Lim

Talk about a modern-day magical fairytale story. This book is it! It’s light, humorous, imaginative and very entertaining.

Vanessa has a super power which will require her to live a lonely life. She fights this power and gains a new one.

There are many things about this book. Mainly for me – family is everything. Family is always in your business but ultimately always has your back.

It is also a foodies book. Lots of talk about family’s obsession with good food. It mentioned a favourite childhood dish back home in the Philippines – Sinigang. My mouth watered. My heart smiled.

I found out after reading the book that the author Roselle Lim is an American-Chinese-Filipino. NO WONDER. Food = family = love. Sharing food brings family together and strengthens the bond. Filipinos love language must be food.

The book felt very familiar to me like a bowl of Sinigang with rice. It was warm in my belly and made my heart full.
