This is a novel by Sohn Won-pyung, published in 2017. It won the 10th Changbi Youth Literature Award. The author depicts the process in which a boy who can't feel emotions form relationships with others, understand them, and be changed. The novel tells the story of two isolated boys who have lost their families, how they grow up through friendship and support for each other, and the courage and willpower necessary to create a better world.  

2017년에 출간된 손원평의 장편소설이다. 제10회 창비청소년문학상 수상작이다. 작가는 '감정을 느끼지 못하는 소년'이 타인과 관계를 맺고 이해하며 변화하는 과정을 그렸다. 소설은 가족을 잃고 고립된 두 소년이 우정을 나누고 서로를 지지하며 성장하는 과정, 그리고 더 나은 세계로 나아가는 데 필요한 용기와 의지에 대해서 말하고 있다.
