YAMASHITA Tomoko

[Japan]

When 35-year-old young-adult novelist KODAI Makio loses her sister in a car accident, she takes in her niece, TAKUMI Asa. Having lost her parents and been tossed into an unknown world, Asa begins a search for the version of herself she wants to become, eventually trying her hand at music. Sharp dialogue and illustrations weave a story of contemporary life that acknowledges diversity in its exploration of the collective.
