Regular readers of Accessible Japan’s blog are familiar with author Suzanne Kamata. Suzanne is a long-time resident of Japan and has a daughter with multiple disabilities.  She is the author of the YA novels Gadget Girl: The Art of Being Invisible and Screaming Divas.

Her latest publication, A Girls’ Guide to the Islands, documents a trip she took with her daughter around Japan’s Inland Sea – covering everything from art exhibits on small islands to wheelchair accessibility. In our review of the book, reviewer Janice G. said:

I would highly recommend this book for the information on art in Japan, some unique places to visit in Japan, and for a peek into the thoughts of a parent of a child with special needs, but overwhelmingly because of its writing style that beautifully uses prose as an artist would use brush strokes, both wide and narrow, to expose a little of her and her daughter’s life in Japan.
