Aiko is the creator of Gadget Girl, a manga hero who constantly saves Chaz’s life and can do everything Aiko’s cerebral palsy prevents. Even though Gadget Girl has many fans, Aiko chooses to remain an anonymous creator. A trip to Paris, the revelation of family secrets, and a new friendship change Aiko’s self-perception and encourage her to become visible to her fans and peers.
