MONICA'S REVIEW:
This is her longest novel yet and even though it does drag in parts, I think it may have been intentional. The novel is about a young woman, Sakumi, who must deal with her sister's suicide. Sakumi falls down a flight of stairs and loses her memory. The book details her journey to rememeber who she is and those people who help her along this path. Banana probably best desribes it in her Afterword:

The theme of this book is simple. I want to express the idea that, regardless of all the amazing events that happen to each one of us, there will always be the never-ending cycle of daily life.

In her quest to describe "daily life", she gets a little carried away ... after all, whose everyday life is something you want to read about? All in all, Banana does her usual of touching on things in a different way that make you consider them in another light.
