A JAPANESE TREASURE
Japan is trending. Who visits the country of the rising Sun wants to go back. The Japanese culture is more and more established among us, from the restaurants and the food, to the Zen philosophy, which we can read in the Francesc Miralles’ latest books such as ICHIGO ICHIE, a phrase that heads the traditional Japanese tea shops and which means “live each instant as if it were unique”. Or the international bestseller IKIGAI, written also with Héctor Garcia, and already translated into 55 languages and it won’t stop.
Francesc surprises us, again, with the first young adult novel settled in Japan: SAKURA LOVE. An amazing, intimate and beautiful story that you will read in one seat, and that will leave you with a good taste in your mouth. You will fall in love with this reading, wishing it never ends because it evokes friendship and the power of love while you discover the most emblematic places of Japan, but also the secret ones.
I think this novel is Francesc in its purest form, a young adult book written from the heart and told from the soul. An inspiring story of love and self-awareness exploring one of the most exotic and trendy places. A novel addressed to the young ones but that will also seduce the adults.
