rsI would rename this book "Fifty Words For Brilliance", it is that moving. A Japanese girl with less than a desirable bloodline is left by her mother on the doorstep of her grandparent's Kyoto mansion.
Nori is taken in and confined to an attic jail, beaten for things she had no control of until her half brother comes to live there and rescues her. Nori is captivated by Akira, hungering for a morsel of attention and love. It is their relationship that saves her. Disaster strikes Nori time and time again but somehow she finds the will to go on while keeping distance from her toxic family. This is a heartbreaking and raw story of family dynasties , childhood emotional scarring and love. It is a timeless story of Japanese culture that translates to every culture. Everything about it is beautiful and tragic at the same time. One of this year's best! 5 stars
