Oh. wow. Exceptional! I was choked up holding back the tears. The best volume in the series so far! Each chapter still focuses on one child and is episodic, yet like the other volumes there is a theme. This time we see the real suffering and desperation these foster kids from dysfunctional families are going through. The book starts off pretty sad and continues in that vein almost bringing me to tears then comes a story where it's the child who has the strength in her unique situation and for the final story something a little different as everyone gathers together while a typhoon rolls in. Exceptional writing and excellent illustration make this the most literary manga I've ever read. Highly recommended!!
