Tomo: Friendship Through Fiction
An Anthology of Japan Teen Fiction

Tomo, meaning "friend" in Japanese, is a collection of short stories and graphic art for readers age 12 and up, contributed by authors and artists from around the world, all of whom share a connection to Japan. Editor Holly Thompson, graphic artist Tak and other contributors will share their stories and help participants write or draw their own letters of support to teens in the hardest hit areas of Japan.
