This story just keeps getting better and better! I was in tears for a good part of it. The emotions expressed are so genuine, and heartfelt. And, all of the stories keep winding in and out of each other. Here we see another link between Shu and Marika, and Fujuya and Asumi. The teens are growing closer, as they get closer to their dreams of space. Very satisfying read.
Another big volume, but I read it just as fast as the rest! Shu gets more sympathetic in this volume, as does Fuchuya. Super upset that this is the last one my library carries!!! I usually need to read on because of the characters, not because of the storyline, but I need to know what happens next!
