It's about a young person trying to work out who they are, and where they fit - and trying to do this whilst surviving the trauma of a triple disaster of colossal scale, told through both prose and manga.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Tsunami Girl, a narrative with manga inserts, is a unique collaboration between author Julian Sedgewick and illustrator Chie Kutsuwada. It's another impressive and original title from this recently established publishing house. * Financial Times *
Another must-read graphic novel is Tsunami Girl. Inspired by the events of the 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, it is a coming of age tale like no other. The story focuses on survivor Yuki Hara Jones, and her experience of events and the aftermath of the disaster. Through art and the creation of a manga superhero called Half-Wave, Yuki is able to process her grief and begin to embrace her future. Sedgwick's prose is heart-warming and heart wrenching in equal measure, and Kutsuwada's illustrations really bring Half-Wave to life. * The Scotsman *
With powerful, emotional manga from Japanese manga artist, Chie Kutsuwada, this is a highly-original coming-of-age story. * Achuka *
An incredibly intense and atmospheric read - the prose descriptions of the disaster and its aftermath are breathtakingly powerful... a story suffused with Japanese legend and modern-day ghost stories. The superb drawings seamlessly reveal the other worldly and spiritual nature of Yuki and Taka's story and the multi-layered whole becomes a truly immersive and compulsive reading experience that will linger long in a reader's thoughts. Highly recommended. * Joy Court, Lovereading.co.uk *
The most thought-provoking story that I've read for a long time. * Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books *
