"Shimura Takako's sensitive and charming series about two middle-schoolers wrestling with their gender identities continues. With the success of their performance of the play The Rose of Versaille, the class decides to do a riff on Romeo and Juliet. Nitori-kun and Chiba-san write the script together, but Chiba-san has an agenda: She wants to play Romeo, with Nitori-kun in the role of Juliet. But Nitori-kun wants the male identified Takatsuki-san to play Romeo. With her usual prickliness, Chiba-san forces Nitori-kun to confront a question he's been avoiding. Are his feelings for Takatsuke-san those of a boy for a girl, a girl for a girl, or a girl for a boy? Our protaganists also face unwanted changes in their growing bodies: Takatsuki-san discovers the wonders of 'breast binders,' and Nitori-kun explores the limits of his ability to 'pass'"--P. 4 of cover.

It was pretty good! This volume didn't contain the "adult friends" characters, who I REALLY think are the series weakest point, as they tend to create a kinda creepy atmosphere. All good!
