Two young woman with complicated backgrounds meet and become the first true friend either has ever had. Our MC is detached, prideful, insecure and kind. Our FL is intelligent, hardworking, inexperienced and determined. Together they experience common everyday school adventures punctuated by moments that force them to face the darkness of humanity far to young.

The world building supports their story. The characterizations are deep even when a characters position in the story is shallow. The friends they eventually make and the family they form are touching. The pacing is languid... more>> without stalling out the momentum. The climactic final tragedy was perfectly foreshadowed the whole book but still came out of nowhere.

Peace and support are what the two girls offer each other. Their love story is ultimately hopeful. It shows that if you stay true to yourself and work for what you want, you will know moments of joy in the life you live not just the destination you are seeking.


This author also has a twisted sense of humor if that last extra is anything to go by. :-P


I recommend this to anyone interested in a true school age friends to lovers tale.

It is a happy ending.


Warning: this may be triggering to some due to

instances of violence.

I really liked this story it's cute there are some serious stuff but other than that it's a cute gl definitely recommend this I'm surprised no one else has written a review for this too bad it's dropped. So, I agree with the review done by "Cereal Is Life" but I still liked it, it was a heartwarming story. Also, the MTL is not hard to read at all

... more>>

I'm not sure why they did that to the extras, but I did read it on MTL so maybe it becomes clearer when it's properly translated


Edit: Omg someone picked it up!!! Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy <<less

One of the best school life/ slice of life novel I read so far. The MC and FL character development during the novel is quite good and very subtle making it natural. Their interaction is very fluffy even though there is a bit of angst in between. The atmosphere set by the author is very slice of life like with a good pace.

I put 5 stars even though the translation isn't very good because I really appreciated the story and I didn't want to penalize it for it. There are... more>> many grammatical and dictation mistakes but I want to encourage the translator for his next works considering that without him/her I wouldn't have had the opportunity to read this novel. <<less

I enjoyed the story very much. Both the MC and the FL’s situations are bad in different ways, but they didn’t wallow in their own self-pity and worked hard towards their future, and that makes me like them very much. Their interactions and care for each other are heart-warming.

The only complaint that I have is about the translation; the grammar, dictation, and punctuation all left a lot to be desired. It’s not to the point where it’s unintelligible and I could still understand most of it, but still, a good... more>> translation would’ve made the reading experience way more enjoyable in my opinion. However, I am still thankful that there is a translation to read at all (for free at that), so I don’t hold anything against the translator, and I only hope they can improve in the future <3 <<less

This novel is quite nice.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read a slow, slice-of-life story. The two main leads are wonderfully written and likable, and their relationship is really adorable as well. The supporting cast is full of personality, and I feel like the author has perfectly captured the beauty of high school youth.

However, I, personally, want to see more romantic scenes of the two leads. I feel like the part after they fell in love could be stretched out more, and it would be nice if... more>> we could get more explicit kissing scenes (though this may be due to censoring.)

All in all, this has been a really pleasant read. Finishing this novel makes me feel all fluffy and happy inside. Chi Tang and You Yu have such a green-flag relationship fr. <<less

It portrays the 3 year life in school, 16-18.


Chi Tang

... more>> She lives with her divorced father who owns a construction company who would frequently bring his friends and women to gamble and smoke in the house. She hated him so much that she wished he were dead when she was 13. She got beaten up whenever she displays any signs of rebellion and stayed to get more money for her livelihood.

Her mother left home, dating countless men while ignoring her. She grew up to be taken as everyone's burden, thus she created an invisible layer of isolation to protect herself from harm.

She has a childhood friend who chases after her desk mates, causing her to lose all her other friends and being socially inept.

You Yue

She came from the village and takes studying seriously. She wanted to change her life of being married off.

During the holidays, she would work part-time jobs to pay for her livelihood. Because of her exceptional ability to study, she gained a scholarship to study at school.

Not much intimate stuff. Kind of like a slice of life with trauma elements. Just like the author has said, it's a both-side healing process. <<less

Oh my goodness it was such an amazing read. Logical and detached characterisation though, so it's not everyone's cup of tea. The MC and FL interaction are meaningful and touching. I braced for the twist but still shocked in the end. Idk, I like the extra a lot, I wish the main story would touch their romance more.

Recommended for people who likes school life first love romance. But have slight dark themes.

Read in original chinese, so cannot comment on translation.

Love the story (progression feels abit similar to bloom into you. Story is different though. But I guess all first love stories progress similarly haha)

Rated 4stars because wanted to read more. Want to see their life after being together. Although the extras are kind of fun to read. But hoping for more.
