This book does not coddle the audience, so it appeals to a wide range of ages. Adults will find the story engaging from its honesty, and teens will appreciate not being talked down to. Yumoto deserves every ounce of praise this book receives, and more. It is only as an adult, and even then, only in the events following the death of a remarkable and rather mysterious, old woman who befriended her as a child that she comes to understand all of these things. This is a story for teenagers or adults as it addresses some mature concepts, but always with tact or good-nature. It is difficult to believe that the text was translated from Japanese; Cathy Hirano's work here is brilliant.
