Shuichi and his friend Yoshino have a secret: Shuichi is a boy who wants to be a girl, and Yoshino is a girl who wants to be a boy. One day their secret is exposed, and the two find themselves the target of sixth-grade cruelty. Yoshino makes a half-hearted effort at being a 'normal girl' which strains their friendship, and their mentor, Yuki, reveals the harder reality of being transgender. Meanwhile, Shuichi's sister, Maho, realizes her dream of becoming a model, and drags Shuichi along for the ride. Then Shuichi meets another boy who wants to be a girl, and finds himself on an arranged date with a boy who doesn't know that the girl he has a crush on is actually a boy.

I think this book is kind of the point in the series where the base is solidly down and now the more unpredictable and important drama starts to unfold. Still gets pretty uncomfortable in some scenes, and still not liking the portrayal of the adult friend characters.

A great book. In this volume, the book shows people what happens to gay people if they were ever found out. The author was pretty accurate in expressing the reaction of people as being gay is frowned upon in most Asian countries.
