The novel version of the acclaimed anime film about surfing, summer love, grief, and a hint of magic. (And don't miss the manga spin-off, also from Seven Seas!)

New college student Hinako, who moved to a small seaside town to surf and have fun, finds herself falling in love with firefighter Minato after he saves her from a fire. Their young romance comes to an abrupt end when Minato drowns...but in her grief, Hinako discovers that singing a song they used to perform as a duet summons Minato into the nearest body of water-be it a puddle, glass, or bathtub. Will Hinako be able to reach Minato again? Originally released as an anime movie by visionary director Masaaki Yuasa-which ran in North American theaters in early 2020-these books are the perfect companions to the film, coming to English-language Blu-ray from Shout! Factory.
