Naomi is 12 years old, the time in a girl's life when all she wants to do is fit in -- which she does, living in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba with her family and friends.

Then her parents divorce, and her mother decides to move to Japan, where the young strawberry blonde who resembles a modern day Anne of Green Gables sticks out like a sore thumb. But Naomi begins to see the fascinating aspects of this new culture, overcoming barriers of language and acceptance, and, in the process gaining self--esteem and a love of Japan. Readers will learn that they too can overcome challenges, and that people have the same basic needs, no matter where they live.
