A charming POC-led WLW romance where two new friends hit the road in search of the missing volumes of their favorite manga.
Neesha Sparks is a disabled, vocal community activist with a passion for costume design. Gabby Graciana is an optimistic surfer – and, like Neesha, a new kid at school. When the two girls discover that they like the same manga series, Navigator Nozomi, they become more than just fellow new kids. But it was more than just having read the same book series–neither of them had finished it! Soon, they become new friends on a mission – to track down the remaining Navigator Nozomi books. This slice-of-life romance follows the two girls as they adventure across North Carolina to find each book, with their story intercut with the tales of Navigator Nozomi. Neesha and Gabby find more than just the books though—they find acceptance, friendship, understanding, and love.

"Whitley’s dialogue handles the various issues (orientation, ableism, racism, PTSD, abusive relationships, death) with great care. Despite these serious themes, the novel is sweet and heartfelt with a wholesome romance at its center. Earnest and uplifting."
