Sanpaku

Sanpaku

by Kate Gavino

Marcine is fascinated with the Japanese idea of Sanpaku. It says that seeing the white around the iris of your eyes is a bad omen. Eating a strict macrobiotic diet and meditating is supposed to help, but no matter how much Marcine wants it to, it can’t save her grandmother, or bring back pop star Selena, or make her life at school any easier.

From cartoonist Kate Gavino (Last Night’s Reading),Sanpakugives voice to the insecurities that abound in teens of all cultures, while exploring this Japanese theory through her own Catholic, Filipino background.
