The third volume in this increasingly popular coming-of-age Manga series picks up the pace with laughs and tears aplenty. Our heroes, Shuichi and Yoshino, have their secret exposed, straining their friendship as they encounter the realities of being young and transgendered. Rendered with sensitivity and sophistication by artist Shimura Takato and translator Matt Thorn, the universality of emotions depicted in Wandering Son should appeal to all readers.
