Publisher Description

Can a poem save your life?

Words are powerful. Insults and rumors can derail a career; a bit of encouragement can give someone the strength to pursue their dreams. When a high school boy skipping class to sketch shoe designs and a taciturn woman drinking a morning beer meet in a Tokyo park, they say little, but the woman bids farewell with an ancient tanka poem. Will the boy figure out the poem’s meaning—and its corresponding response—before it’s too late?

I highly recommend this book

I read the book and movie and they are amazing!! I really recommend this book and if you want to go all out watch the movie it’s beautiful.

ABK Reilly ,

Heartfelt and layered

The artwork is clean and not too busy with details.

The story itself is based on a short film with the same title.

A very well made adaption of the film and adds to the story in ways that the film doesn't.

A leisurely paced tale that builds to a climax and warms the heart.
