Simone: This debut novel by Japanese author Hiro Arikawa is a lovely, sweet and endearing story.
Satoru, owner of the cat Nana, is looking for a new owner.
They travel the country together, visiting old friends who might be suitable and willing to adopt Nana. They reminisce about their time together at school, or their friendship later in life.
Nana, the cat with a tail shaped like a 7, adds her own perspective on things, and is quite a personality.
Their road trip together proves to be a very important experience, and both look back on it with great affection for each other.
