The sequel to “Gadget Girl” (GemmaMedia, 2013), this book continues the story of Aiko, a bicultural teenager with cerebral palsy and a passion for drawing manga. While fans will be pleased to see a natural progression of “Gadget Girl,” those meeting Aiko for the first time in “Indigo Girl” will be in no way disadvantaged.

After growing up with her American mother in a “testosterone-free zone,” as she wryly observes, Aiko’s family has now expanded to include a stepfather and baby half sister, and the 15-year-old is questioning her place in this new order. She is excited about a summer trip to Japan, and the chance to meet her biological father for the first time, and to try on a new family for size. The reality, of course, is not what Aiko expects.
