"Shane was shaking his head. "I don't know, buddy. You tell me."

""What do you want to eat?" Calvin asked. "They've pretty much got the staple of all the cuisines here. Orion hot dogs, Urcian creamy noodles, Cloverly fish and chips, Bellprix spicy seafood stew - you name it and they can probably make it taste absolutely . . . terrible."
Jiho laughed. "What's the least terrible?"
Calvin and Shane looked at each other. Shane shook his head.
"Dude, these guys have such a special talent that even toast tastes bad," Shane said."
"It's okay, I'm pretty hungry," Jiho said.
"Hmmmm, you like pizza?" Shane asked.
"Never had it," Jiho replied.
"Good, then you won't know how disappointing it actually is."" - The Dragon Egg Princess

On vegetarianism, when the group enters Nackwon and goes to the market, p. 100-1: " ' Pardon me,' Franke said. 'But it was the best dang thing I've ever eaten in my entire life! I don't know what kind of weird meat was in the soup but it was real good.' 'Oh, there's no meat in it,' Koko said "Granny's a vegetarian. Those were roots and mushrooms.' Frankie looked stunned and peered into his empty bowl in betrayed confusion. 'Not meat?' he whispered to himself. 'I've never eaten so many vegetables in my life,' Shane said, wondering. 'I guess I wouldn't mind if it all tasted like this.' 'Must be magic,' Calvin said. 'No magic, just seasonings,' Koko replied."

I really enjoyed Ellen Oh's previous works and was looking forward to this. Perhaps my disappointment stems from it being more of a Middle Grade work than Young Adult, but this didn't work for me as well as other works for younger readers. While we cared about the trio of young protagonists, we weren't given too much reason to care about their allies or to understand their antagonists. The ending also felt incomplete -- I would have liked to have seen more of the family the main character was so concerned about, or to have some idea of how another character was going to cope with her new reality. As a standalone novel, this feels unfinished, but this would work as the beginning of a new series.
