A short read. Dreamy, lonely and Ephemeral. Each chapter is told in a separate voice during different times. Only beef I have with this book is a choice made by the translator to substitute the Japanese suffix of "chan" to the english word "dear." I don't think it was really necessary and is super awkward in the text. It only happens into two chapters but be mindful when you see it.
