Translator here! This is my first independent translation project and I am so excited to help make this story more accessible to international readers. This is hands-down one of my favourite web novels of all time, so you could probably surmise that I am also a big fan of slowburn, angst and pining, and it just so happens that these are three things Suancai-laoshi does extremely well.

This is a heartfelt coming-of-age story about two kids who fumble their way through falling in love for the first time while struggling with... more>> the sobering reality of familial abuse. There are many light-hearted slice-of-life moments and fun banter from side characters and all the fluff that can be wrung out of a school life setting. (All hail Li Balei, our queen of gossip and snark.) There are also bleak moments that will leave you speechless and have you sobbing on your kitchen floor (throwback to my first read-through, heyo). This story will make you care about the characters and it will make you fall in love with their love, which is honestly the most important quality in a romance.

It's hard to come up with a non-spoilery summary of the novel because not much happens in the novel plot-wise. I almost want to say nothing particularly original happens in this novel either, especially if you are well-read in this genre. But I don't think that's the point. There are only so many ways a pair of high school kids can get together in real life, after all. What makes this story good are its characterizations and the emotional force behind each moment that advances their relationship.

I am a sucker for caring/needs-care pairings who are slightly codependent. If you're looking for a novel starring perfectly healthy relationships, you are not going to find that here. But the characters try the best they can given the circumstances (and the fact that they're literally children), and their flaws and failures make up the story's appeal.

I hope I do the story justice and I hope that you'll give it a chance if you're still on the fence.

The lovely reviewer above me mentioned extras — yes! There is a whole sequel that takes place after the events of this book which I will be tl-ing as soon as I'm done Frostbite. <<less

I read this before the tragedy tag was added on NU ;-; Luckily, it's not truly a tragedy.

I loved this novel, although certain parts were extremely.

I still would say the it has a HE.

While yes, the ML is in prison, the MC is able to wait. When he gets out they will be together again.


I just want them to be happy : (Especially the ML

For side characters, I really loved the girl, I'm not sure of her actual name since it was mtl'd as Li Ballet (lol). She was very supportive and I hope she ends up happy.

I hope the author adds more extras of the MC and ML being happy together :) <<less
