"STUNNING, EVOCATIVE . . . [A] well-crafted coming-of-age novel."
--School Library Journal

Mori tells the story of Fifteen-year-old Megumi -- whose world was turned upside down when her parents break up, her mother runs away, and she is left with her unsupportive father and grandmother. Just when she feels that no one cares, Megumi meets Dr. Mizutani, a smart young woman who offers Megumi a part-time job in her veterinary office helping her heal sick birds. Dr. Mizutani seems to understand Megumi without asking a lot of questions. And as Megumi finally begins to accept why her mother had to flee, she begins to make sense of her 'new' world and discovers a confident strength within herself she never knew she had.

"The text gains an intensity from the discipline with which every detail of this accomplished work is orchestrated from the first page to the last."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
