Manga Club: Mermaid Scales and the Town of Sand
When Tokiko's parents break up, she and her father move from the bustling city to a sleepy coastal town to live with her grandmother. Starting sixth grade in a new school where everyone has known each other their whole lives isn't easy. Things start to look up when local boy Yosuke, another outsider, wants to be friends. Yosuke, like everyone else in town, denies the existence of merpeople, even though the town holds a secret festival to honor them... And Tokiko is pretty sure she remembers being saved by one. Tokiko searches for the truth about the town and her memories in this beautiful coming-of-age story by Yoko Komori.
