I enjoyed this read about Aiko's struggles with cerebral palsy and her desire to be invisible while still wanting to be recognized for her manga. The numerous conflicts could have made this into a real gritty issue book, but the author keeps it light and not too angsty. I loved that Aiko was defined by more than her disability. Recommended to contemporary romance/realistic teen fiction fans.

A young manga artist travels to Paris with her single mother. There, she deals with a few issues: her cerebral palsy, her estranged father, and her desire to be invisible and unnoticed. A very sweet, quick read. I’d say the quality is average, but the story is utterly believable without being horribly gritty and raw.
