Miss Kanagawa was the finest — and final — creation of a master Japanese doll maker. In 1927, she and 57 other child-sized dolls were sent from Japan to America as Ambassadors of Friendship. As Miss Kanagawa travels across the country, she changes the lives of four very special girls.
From Bunny, a wealthy girl in New York City, to Lucy, an Oklahoma girl heading west during the Great Depression, the girls all experience a mysterious connection to Miss Kanagawa, and she helps guide them through the tough times. But the doll never expected that the girls would change her life, too!
Told from the perspectives of the four girls and the doll herself, this memorable novel is both a friendship story and a glimpse into a fascinating period of American history.
