ACHUKA Book of the Day 16 Mar 2021
Fifteen-year-old Yuki is struggling at school with her confidence, and goes to Japan to stay with her grandfather, a well-known manga artist with whom she is very close. But during her visit, the 2011 East Coast Earthquake and Tsunami take place and her beloved Grandpa is lost.
Interwoven with Japanese folk tales, modern-day ghost stories, and the creation of her very own vibrant manga hero, Yuki finds the courage to overcome extraordinary odds and take her first steps into the world that lies beyond catastrophe. With powerful, emotional manga from Japanese manga artist, Chie Kutsuwada, this is a highly-original coming-of-age story from the relatively new imprint, Guppy Books.
