Hana no Namae/The Name of the Flower. I read this for 2nd time and I still LOVE it, still my favorite and the story and the words are still so BEAUTIFUL and successfully mesmerized me till the end. I literally squeezed a bucket of tears too. T___T

18 year old Chouko and her 30 year old guardian, Kei are both scarred, broken people. When Chouko is 16, both her parents died in an accident. Curt, withdrawn Kei stepped in and offered a home to the girl who had stopped speaking. Together they began to heal through her quiet efforts in the garden. Now Chouko is graduating from high school and is free, but finds she doesn't want to leave the man she has grown to love ~ and not as a father figure. A quiet romantic love story ~
