At its heart is Yuki Oyama, a Japanese girl fighting to make it as an artist, and her struggle with her decision to leave her two-year-old son, Jay. As an adult, Jay sets out to find his mother and confront her abandonment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Harmless Like You is a beautifully written, many-layered novel that, at its core, tells the personal story of a mother and a son--a struggling artist and the child she left behind in pursuit of that art.
Harmless Like You is a refreshing, bold book about understatement.
