When it comes to grades, bookish high school student Mariko Kumakura is at the top of her class. Socially, however, she is shy and lonely, typically eating lunch by herself.

    Excellent - check it out

    'Girlfriends' is one of those books, that is something I or you would not have trouble reading the first half or more in just a sitting or two. The characters are well-created in the sense you understand why one should feel this or that for that character described. I have read more than half way through it, even after just getting it- which is fast for me. The girls go things that real girls likely (I dunno!) go through, which makes it more believable despite it's own fiction. The girls are cute, and the story is not too light but is fun to read. Recommended to fans of 'Strawberry Panic'.

    Normally, i'm not into Yuri mangas, but this is one of the cutes

    Normally, i'm not into Yuri mangas, but this is one of the cutest love stories i have ever read. I love the drawings and the characterizations, the creative, playful, and comical dialogue, and of course the plot that blends the complexity of relationships and real issues with the normal interactions between high school friends. The romance is well developed between the characters, making it entertaining to read. I absolutely loved this. I already read it, i'm just happy BN now has copies so i can buy my own to keep!

    Highly Reccomended!! - I loved the book!

    The book was actually quite long, but it was very cute and I loved the storyline. My friend actually got the book too. I can't wait 'til I can get the next one! It left me with such a cliffhanger!
