"Reading this book made me question a number of things: what it means to contribute to society or to have my own ‘place’ where I feel comfortable. It also made me re-think presumptions that society holds about 'right,' 'wrong,' or 'normal' behaviors. What is it to be a 'human?' I believe everyone has wondered and asked themselves who they really are and the author of this novel expresses it comically!” - Tomomi Tsukioka

Tomomi has been working in the Marketing Department at the San Francisco office since 2014. She loves spending her weekends watching movies, reading books, and hanging out with her friends. She is a vegetarian and loves dogs, and she wants to try learning the guitar this year!
