Is this girl a devil in disguise or a misunderstood angel?

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences T.

Meet Maria Kawai—she’s gorgeous and whip-smart, a girl who seems to have it all. But when she unleashes her sharp tongue, it’s no wonder some consider her to be the very devil! Maria’s difficult ways even get her kicked out of an elite school, but this particular fall may actually turn out to be her saving grace...

Maria’s frank nature gains her more enemies at her new school, but her angelic singing voice inadvertently catches the attention of Yusuke Kanda and Shin Meguro. Can these boys mend her hardened heart, or will they just end up getting scorched?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—Maria is a talented vocalist who is forced to enroll at the local public high school, and she soon discovers that her reputation precedes her. The rumors have already started about why she got expelled from her prestigious private school. Students are staying away from her, but not making an effort to hide their preconceived impressions. They gather in groups and whisper things about her while she is walking by, making it clear that they already don't like her. Yusuke and Shin, however, are intrigued by the mystery that is Maria. Did she really beat up a teacher? Where does that amazing voice come from and why is she singing "Amazing Grace?" The art is crafted in a way that shows that Maria stands out not only in talent, but also in looks, creating yet another reason for the girls to be jealous of her. While her reputation makes her sound spiteful and capable of cruel things, she is illustrated as sweet and innocent. The story ends leaving readers wanting to know the truth about her; they are sure to ask for future volumes in the series.—Jessica Lorentz Smith, Bend Senior High School, OR

I was anticipating reading this series for quite some time, and to my delight it was available via Nook. Luckily, I wasn't disappointed. Maria is by far one of the strongest main characters Ive come across through my manga reading experience. She's got such a good heart, and she brims with faith, yet she doesnt hesitate to be honest and true, to the point where people feel threatened by her ability to sense the true nature of someone. Im so glad to have come in contact with this manga, and Im excited to read the next volume. ~ Alexus
