*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
After Tokiko’s parent’s divorce, she and her father move to a small coastal town to live with her grandfather. After leaving all her friends behind, Tokiko is happy to find the locals are nice and her friend group grows quickly, including a solemn boy named Narumi. Together, they look for a secret place where there could be mermaids.
Without spoilers, this did not go where I expected it to go but this was still nice to read. It’s oddly calming; the minimalistic art does so heavy lifting in providing plenty of emotions as the story plays out. I recommend it if you’re looking for some young adult manga in a “small town with a secret” typed of story. 4 out of 5.
