Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano
This book is written in manga style of back-to-front, but comes with a nice warning at the front so that you are reminded where to being.
It is a story of children, bullying, parents and teachers who don't pay attention, those who take advantage of such situations, and the difficulties of dealing with it from the children's side. It is about hope, through the imagery of the butterfly.
Not an easy book to follow, but the drawings are wonderful and the underlying message meaningful.
One gets a sense of the pain, the frustration, the sadness from the characters.
