Innocent Bird

Shoko’s in love. Shoko’s growing feathers. Growing up means she has to make a choice, the same one she hates her mother for making.

  • Excerpt

    If only she could have the feathers of a duck, a cormorant, a pelican, a grebe, a loon—even an egret or an ibis. With sparrow’s wings, she’d never swim again, not the way she did now.

    One love or another. Ichika or the sea.
