A Tale For The Time Being - Ruth Ozeki

Ozeki has such a delightful way of telling a story. Meet Nao, a Tokyo teenager who is tired of the bullying from her classmates and turns to the found diary of her great-grandmother who was a Buddhist nun. Then enter Ruth, a novelist who finds artifacts washed up on an island shore and we've got a intricately woven tale of the human condition that when in Oxeki's hands becomes something very special.
