Nominated for a 2021 Eisner Award! This layered coming-of-age story from the author of I Want to Eat Your Pancreas and At Night, I Become a Monster is based on the original novel (also from Seven Seas).
An unhappy girl who engages in self-harm, a high schooler ostracized by her classmates, and an old woman looking to live out her twilight years in peace–what could three such different people have in common? That’s what grade schooler Nanoka Koyanagi is trying to find out. Assigned by her teacher to define what “happiness” means to her, Nanoka tries to find her place in the world by exploring her relationships with these three strangers, and through them, comes to know herself.
