The structure of the dummy reveals an eclectic use of notebook style and a very thorough research. The dummy deals with the emotional cries of children raised in abusive homes. The jury was impressed by the way Miki Hasegawa approached this extremely difficult subject matter. A book not easy to digest but nonetheless very significant. We found it remarkable how she tells the stories in such a respectful, delicate way.
