Overview

Half World by Hiromi Goto, Jillian Tamaki

Melanie Tamaki is an outsider. As the unpopular and impoverished only child of a loving but neglectful mother, she is just barely coping with school and life. But everything changes on the day she returns home to find her mother is missing, lured back to Half World by a vile creature calling himself Mr. Glueskin. Soon Melanie embarks on an epic and darkly fantastical journey to Half World to save her mother. What she does not yet realize is that the state of the universe is at stake.... Award-winning author Hiromi Goto’s novel is an adventurous, genre-bending fantasy of shape-shifting characters, tortured half-lives, and redemption.

This read quickly became one of my favorite books. I suggest it wholeheartedly to anyone that enjoys Neil Gaiman, Hary Potter, and Japanese culture. It is beautiful, emotional. And inspirational.
