After I finished this brief (160 pages), unexpected, quirky gem of the book, I didn't have the words to describe it. Long after I finished Convenience Store Woman (2018) by Sayaka Murata, I kept thinking about it.

To say Xingyin has lived a sheltered life is putting it mildly. She, her mother, and her mother's attendant live alone in the Palace of Pure Light on the moon, for Xingyin's mother is the moon goddess. Their days pass peacefully, until Xingyin awakens her celestial powers, which prompts an unexpected visit from the Celestial Empress. Xingyin learns that her birth was a secret, and that her mother's position as the moon goddess is a punishment for drinking the elixir of immortality, which the Celestial Emperor gifted to Xingyin's father for saving the mortal realm from the sunbirds.
