Ruth discovers a HelloKitty lunchbox washed up on the shore of her beach home in Canada, which might have arrived on a drift of debris from the 2001 tsunami.Within it lies a diary that expresses the hopes and dreams of a young girl Nao Yasutani who is navigating the challenges thrown up by modern life. Nao is trying to ?nd her own place- and voice- through a diary she hopes will ?nd a reader and friend who ?nally understands her.
