But this stupid brother only has eyes for his older brother.

-----------Comments from the translator---------------

Hello lovelies! I'm here to introduce to you another story that I loved personally. It's about two brothers and their struggles through life. The autistic younger brother and his older brother share a very special bond, and this story goes into great detail about how this came to be, how they dealt with it and how it altered their futures. This story also stands out among BL novels in that it explores China in the 80s in great depth, as our protagonists live through major events in the country at that time.

There will be explicit content between the brothers, so I warn those against incest to stop here and save yourselves the anguish.

I hope this story will also raise more awareness for autism, bullying, and bullying involving autistic children. I study psychology as my major and know quite a bit about autism. I think the story did a decent job portraying an autistic person, but if you are autistic yourself, or know someone close who is, and find this portrayal to be inaccurate, please let me know. <<less
