Empire State: A Love Story (Or Not)

Empire State: A Love Story (Or Not) by Jason Shiga, 144 pages.

Jimmy lives n Oakland, at home with his mother. He works at the library and he hangs out with his friend Sara. When she decides that she wants more out of life and moves to New York, Jimmy realizes that he may have been in love with her. He writes her a letter and jumps on a bus heading to New York. The bus trip is funny, and the time in New York is bittersweet. This is a different side to Jason  Shiga from the one seen in Demon or in Bookhunter. A nice read.
