Review as of v2 c9, rated 5.

What did you do when you were at schools? How did the teacher treated you? Were you able to get together with your first love or let he/she go to another instead? We all probably have regrets and precious treasures at equal amount kept deep within our heart since that time when we were still naive little students, and this is what the book does best: invoking poignant, faraway memories of our own youth, parallel with that of the MC. However, this book’s “dedicated... more>> to our youth” part refers to the 1990s, which will make readers who are currently around late 20s or early 30s feel wonderfully nostalgic, but the younger ones may feel disconnected with some of the cultural references and circumstances that built up the largest part of the story. Nevertheless, this book deserved 5 stars rating, not only for the feelings it invoked, but also for its steady character development and superb narrative. Aside of the MC growth that was visibly convoluted, there are plenty side characters, which although the author didn’t dwell on them, but readers can see that each of them has their own distinct personality. It’s a wonder how the author managed to do this while keeping up with the plot and maintaining its nostalgic nuances. <<less

You know that feeling when you really liked a story and you want to reread the story, but you’re afraid that when you reread it, the feeling wouldn’t be the same? So now, you just suffer missing the story.

That s how I feel right now.

That s how good this novel is. Really worth the read. I have only been an online novel-reader for a year but I’m confident to say that the feelings you get in this book is beautiful and unique. I haven’t felt the same feelings in other... more>> novels before.

I know my describing is kinda vague but trust me👌

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ <<less

I love this book so much. I just started reading yesterday yet I got hooked. In the end, I finished reading the available translations.

This book is so realistic that it seems as if I experienced it myself. Although I'm one of the younger generation, I could say that this book is a good materials. It explained about how one decision can change the way of how life used to be.

I especially like the MC. She may seems like a nerd at first but then unexpectedly, she's very brave and wild. She got that type of stubborn personality that hate being underestimated. The storyline and plot, everything is perfect. Each characters got their own story and problems whereas how they end up become. I have to say, this book is very harsh because this is really the outlook of life.

The poem and the words is pretty much beautiful. It seems as if the author himself/herself explained how he/her childhood day was like, how different it was compared to the present and how the laws become more stricter with a lot more crimes crawling around the streets. It also showed about people's life; if they work hard, they may achieve things that they want. It also showed that some other subjects cannot be learn by memorizing only. Only understanding could one become good at it.

I have to say, I respect the author who wrote this book. It's such a good one with a lot of morals anx things about how childhood may influence themselves.


This story is very deep. Peopld would definitely won't regret reading this. <<less

This is the only chinese novel that I had to read through google translate out of desperation. Usually, no matter how good a story is I could not bring myself to read painstakingly through MTL it, but this one is an exception. This is a lovely story that brings back the days of our youth; the problems one face as he/she comes of age along with the sweet bitter taste of first love.
