Sitting down to write this review what is whirling in my mind is that the novel was not at all what I was expecting and that it surprised me in more point than one... and that, in a way, it was also a teasing book.

* I couldn't stand the Kazuki character from the start and nothing in the next pages made him any more bearable

Enjoyed this book very much: good characters, nicely written and a plot full of angst.
