This is a rather sweet and sad story about two fifth graders, a boy who wants to be a girl, and a girl who wants to be a boy. This is not the over-the-top style manga you encounter so often, but a really realistic look at how these kids might realize what's going on with them, how they might resist and deny it, and the friends who might see through them and try to help. It's volume one of a series, so I will probably check out later volumes to see what happens, though I fear it will be tough for these kids.
