My name is Yuko Zen and I am somewhere else …
After a strange encounter with a beautiful girl in a Chinese take-away, Chris Winter discovers she’s left her journal behind. He only opens it to search for her contact details, but he’s quickly pulled into her mysterious world – a nameless Asian city filled with tales of Buddhist dogs, hedgehogs and yogurt pots, and a magical girl named Pixie.
When Chris is totally hooked, Yuko’s journal takes an unexpected turn. It starts to talk to him.
Magical (sur)realism for Young Adults of all ages, editors at Harper Collins have likened Yuko Zen is Somewhere Else to works by Audrey Niffenegger and Haruki Murakami.
