Gr 9 Up-Satoru, often mistaken for a girl, has a strong crush on his long-time best friend, Shirou. He has confessed his love every year, and each time he is rejected. Unable to understand why, he decides to give up his quest, assuming that Shirou has fallen for the beautiful Seiichi. Seiichi, on the other hand, has fallen for Satoru. This all-male love triangle finally untangles when, after a three-year time lag, a long-lost letter arrives in Satoru's mailbox, providing the catalyst that allows the boys to confront one another with their true feelings. This is a sweet and angst-filled example of the boys' love genre. Filled with innuendo and a few PG-rated love scenes, the "will they or won't they" intrigue will surely charm readers. The fluid art style with its pretty male characters works exceptionally well. This one-volume edition is perfect for any library looking to add boys' love manga to their collection without a huge commitment to additional volumes.-Jennifer Feigelman, Goshen Public Library and Historical Society, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
