The Floating World by Cynthia Kadohata

The voice of an adolescent wise beyond her years is rendered here authentically, memorably & beautifully in a very different coming-of-age story. We were traveling then in what (my grandmother) called ukiyo, the floating world. The floating world was the gas station attendants, restaurants, & jobs we depended on, the motel towns floating in the middle of fields & mountains. It also referred to change & the pleasures & loneliness change brings. We were stable, traveling through an unstable world. The author captures & confines the limitless expanse of her adolescent world & gives it shape & focus.
