Praise

“Momo Arashima may be #71 on mean-girl Kiki Weldon’s list of popular seventh graders, but she’s #1 in the kami-verse! This wild ride of a novel is simultaneously a hilarious adventure and a meditation on fear, anger, bravery, friendship, and the ties of family and love.”
—Sayantani DasGupta, New York Times bestselling author of the Kingdom Beyond series

“With vivid descriptions, relatable characters, and colorful figures from Japanese mythology, Misa Sugiura takes readers on a grand adventure.
—Brandon Mull, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fablehaven

★ “A page-turning, emotion packed adventure that draws on Japanese-inspired folklore to explore themes of family, friendship, and identity.” —Booklist, starred review

This hilarious, high-spirited tale blends Japanese legends, mythical creatures, and deities. Alongside the fantastical romps, themes of fear, anger, loneliness, belonging, friendship, and inner strength are thoughtfully explored. Funny, relatable, and full of adventure.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Culturally specific details imbue this roller-coaster-feeling magical plot with authenticity and intrigue, while Momo’s smart, funny narration and slowly reforming relationship with Danny ground their adventure in a thoughtful friendship tale.” —Publishers Weekly
