The Spaced-Out Mother in HEAVEN

The MC comes home, bleeding copiously, blood all over his school uniform, etc.

He goes to bed and can’t sleep.

NO HOSPITAL????

Is the boy really that invisible?

Guess so.

This novel is excruciating. It’s a little bit like reading Ayelet Tsabari. But, at least, at the end of Tsabari’s book, she snaps out of her self-destructive cycle of behavior. Here, self has very little hope that the MC will be able to break the victim/abuser cycle because his best friend has just told him he is STRONGER FOR BEING ABLE TO TAKE THE ABUSE. Which means he will just keep on taking it, unless he can find that magical place ‘Heaven’ that Kojima keeps talking about.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
