The Nakano Thrift Shop (Large Print / Library Binding)
This is a quirky, occasionally funy, occasionally heartbreaking novel populated with endering, eccentric characters. If you've ever felt like an outsider and/or you've eer felt that spark of sameness and familiarity with someone completely differrent from yourself, this novel will resonate with you.— Billie
