Summary
The summer before she turned sixteen, Christine Inzer traveled solo to Tokyo to get reacquainted with her birthplace. Through charming illustrations, photos, and musings, Christine takes us on a journey through modern Japan: she explores the fashion hub of Harajuku; she hunts down geisha in Kyoto; she eats the best sushi of her life in Tsukiji; and she meets many interesting characters along the way. Halfway home is an engaging, and often hilarious, look at a fascinating country and a girl rediscovering her roots
Summary
The author, who was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and an American father, and grew up in the United States, recounts in graphic novel format her visit to her grandparents in Tokyo the summer before she turned sixteen
