nonnies, talking about japanese female writers, there's this book I've been looking for for a long time. I remember reading it from the library a few years ago but I never finished and I just can't seem to remember the name of it and it's haunting me
It's about a group of little girls who are friends on a city on the country side of Japan. I remember very clearly that the city either had the cleanest air or cleanest water or something like that. One day they are playing at a park near a school and a stranger aproaches them and asks for one of them to sort of guide him through the school and then some time later when they go look for that girl they find her body on a classroom, being clear that she was raped and then killed.
The book is basically about the lives of these friends after they grow up with the trauma, I remember that the first one ends up in an abusive
marriage in France.
That's all I really recall from that book, if anyone knows which book it is I would really appreciate
