really liked it

Read in March, 2012

A girl who wants to be a boy and a boy who wants to be a girl.

This is a thoughtful take on gender identity and growing up.

I don't think its necessarily insightful or deep enough to change the world, but its a well-told slice-of-life story that is much more sensitive than your usual shojo/shonen fluff.

(also, extra bonus points for their school play being The Rose of Versailles <3 )

This is only volume 1 (even tho it comes as a hardback, which you usually only see on one-off special volumes), and I'm eagerly awaiting volume 2 :)
