Suzanne Kamata

A Girls' Guide to the Islands

“A Girls’ Guide to the Islands follows author Suzanne Kamata’s journey with her daughter, Lilia, into the remote realm of the Seto Inland Sea’s world-class art collection. Beautiful in its directness and honesty, A Girls’ Guide examines the nature of accessibility and independence as Kamata and Lilia face challenges physical, emotional and artistic. The trip yields unexpected, occasionally amusing adventures as the two women explore new landscapes as well as their own changing relationship.”
—Kelly Luce, author of Pull Me Under

“Heart-lifting and inspiring, A Girls’ Guide to the Islands explores the restorative and often-unexpected way that travel breeds connection not only with the world around us, but within ourselves and—most importantly—each other.”
—Nicole Trilivas, author of Girls Who Travel
