Title: Wandering Son
Author: Shimura Takako
Summary: Two transgender elementary school students in Japan grow up.
Gut reaction: Deep and cute.
Why: The characters and their reactions are very life-like and the contemporary Japanese setting was executed flawlessly. The plot progressed logically and mimicked the pacing of real life, which you don’t get often these days. I could empathize with the main characters and the side characters had a lot of personality.
Who would like this book: All shoujo fans, seinen fans, and anyone into LGBTQ+ would love this series. I will definitely follow it to the end!
