Fumiko and a Tokyo Tragedy is the latest title in the Girls Survive Series by Capstone Publishing

The Daruma doll is a good luck doll that usually has unpainted eyes. I followed the tradition of coming up with a goal or a wish and painted one of the eyes black. My goal was to write the book, Fumiko and a Tokyo Tragedy. When I finished the book, I painted the other eye. The doll brought me luck because I saw my project to the end and the book was published. Some people burn the Daruma doll afterwards. They buy a new one and start a new goal. I'm keeping my little guy.
