Two transgender students grow up in Japan.

Author:  Shimura Takako

Summary:  Two transgender elementary school students in Japan grow up.

Gut reaction: Deep and cute.

Why: The characters and their reactions are very life-like and the contemporary Japanese setting was executed flawlessly.  The plot progressed logically and mimicked the pacing of real life, which you don’t get often these days.  I could empathize with the main characters and the side characters had a lot of personality.

Who would like this book:  All shoujo fans, seinen fans, and anyone into LGBTQ+ would love this series.  I will definitely follow it to the end!
