In a crowded Tokyo suburb, four teenage girls indifferently wade their way through a hot, smoggy summer. When one of them, Toshi, discovers that her nextdoor neighbor has been brutally murdered, the girls suspect the killer is the neighbor's son. But when he flees, taking Toshi's bike and cell phone with him, the four girls get caught up in a tempest of dangers that rise from within them as well as from the world around them. Psychologically intricate and astute, Real World is a searing, eye-opening portrait of teenage life in Japan unlike any we have seen before.

REVIEWS

“Disquieting and suspenseful.” The New York Times Book Review
 
“Brilliant feminist noir. . . . Sleek, assured and disturbing. . . . Reads like Little Women in an acid bath. . . .You won't want to miss it.” The Plain Dealer
 
“Transfixing. . . . Kirino touches on much deeper issues than unlocking teenage diaries. . . . A psychologically complex story told in a breezy, adolescent way, reminiscent of Bonjour Tristesse.” The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“Kirino demands total submission to her characters' inner lives. . . . [Real World] challenges readers to confront the truth of human nature, to release judgments about violence and see beyond the act to its roots.” The Miami Herald
