I'm ashamed to say that I had never known of this novel (despite its huge popularity in the Chinese circle) before this year. I saw some tweets about it when people were talking about the erha live action and decided to read it and it was not a mistake. First off, I cannot begin to describe my love for this novel in proper words, this is the best I could articulate that wasn't just garbled word smashes and muffled screams

This is one of the most beautiful novels I have read... more>> in a while, the author wrote the characters with so much care and you could really see that as you go on reading the book unraveling their backstories. The author also wrote the relationship between JC and GF very well, most danmei's would write the "top" "bottom" roles in stone which I find very distasteful. The side characters felt like real people with real relationships not just random side character bffs whose only real purpose is to either give encouragement to the relationship or make the ML jealous (over friendship smh).

Overall it was a wonderful read with no ''oppressive jealous of the rocks around love interest'' ML and "super op take 10 dollars to the stock market and become a billionare'' MC

ALSO I really loved how mental illness was written here. It's not something that just cures itself with the power of love, its an actual illness that many struggle with and will struggle with for the rest of their lives even with professional help... and FOR ONCE it wasn't just written as "crazy" or something the MC healed with his presence like many other stories. love that for me :). <<less

Hello, I am the new co-translator for this novel that will be translating all the odd chapters starting from Ch. 21 _ (:3 」∠) _ Although I am aware that as a translator, I may be a little biased, however, I wouldn't be translating a series that I don't feel incredibly moved by... and SAYE moved me.

By a lot.

The story is about the difficulties our MC, Jiang Cheng, a handsome boy with good grades but a rebellious spirit, and ML, Gu Fei, a calm boy with more burdens than he should handle and a beautiful face (but is just as masculine; there is no gong-shou dynamic here, they are a very equal and reversible couple), overcome as they trudge along the path towards growing up with the unstopping comfort and support of one another.

The introduction to the story may seem boring to some at first glance, but as you choose to go further along with the story, you'll be taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. From the tender moments of warmth between Jiang Cheng and Gu Fei to the sheer desperation felt by the two towards their unfortunate circumstances, each moment feels incredibly raw in its realism.

Their difficulties, too, have a wide range; from the dark pasts that only an unfortunate few have to face to the almost laughable common problems that any 17-year-old teenager would face. Nothing felt overly dramatized nor exaggerated; the author was able to perfectly balance out the heavy impacts of emotions by bringing in a good amount of hilarious moments of teenage antics; ultimately creating a story that was not only deep but well-rounded and memorable.

As a reader with an unfortunately strikingly similar background and past as both protagonists, my level of relation towards the two may be more than most people would feel. Reading this story gave me hope for my own life. However, that by no means means that you have to have a similar and equally dark past to appreciate the story.

If the only reason why one could be moved by the story is by having sheer similarities in circumstances, then this story would not be nearly so popular in China right now. Even if you do not have a similarly tragic past, the author is still able to let the reader understand and fall in love with her characters due to her own powerful ability to portray emotions and the use of the little moments in life that everybody could be able to relate to one or the other.

Although the story is incredibly popular in the Chinese community, I realize that most people in the west aren't particularly interested in realistic stories... thus making this story terribly underexposed at the moment. I highly recommend that everybody give this story a shot. You won't regret it. <<less

I made an account because I was so excited this novel is finally getting translated. I've read about 80 chapters of it in Chinese and I enjoyed it so much. It's such a tender story that brings two such different people, yet so well-described and crafted by Wu Zhe, together. And ultimately, it's about youth and letting loose and being true to yourself. Thank you so much for starting to translate it!!

This is my first time writing a review, mostly because I really can't be bothered to do so for any novel I've read. However, this novel is worthy of any praise it gets. I don't know how to explain it, but this novel has this whole healing aura around it. Reading it gives me a sense serenity and makes my heart warm up. Two drastically different people who come from broken families eventually grow closer. Their interactions are simple, yet the author is able to beautifully portray the emotions and... more>> growth of the characters. I really can't go into depth with my poor explanation skills, but if you were to take away one thing from my review is to read this novel right now. I can guarantee you will not regret it. <<less

READ THIS WEBNOVEL.

This webnovel is probably the best I've ever read. It has a sweet and genuine coming-of-age vibe that threaded through the entire story, and it really made you feel for the characters when their lives got difficult. The characterisation is very strong and the main characters never really had moments where you can't understand where they're coming from or their motivations. It's about being true to yourself and letting yourself be helped, but also about picking yourself up from a dismal place and looking towards hope. Ultimately, it's... more>> really about two lonely boys who found each other in a complicated situation and moving forward together, finding a family in each other, and never giving up even when it gets rough.

I edited my review just to flail about it more. It's honestly my favourite story, and also one of the most well-known among the c-fan community. The author is really good at writing realistic stories that pull at your heartstrings, and the subdued yet emotional tone at some intense parts really hits you in the gut. (Also it makes you want a relationship like that, when you just get the other person without any unnecessary drama ;_;)

Spoiler

Jiang Cheng is one of the most courageous and motivating characters I've ever read, and Gu Fei and his internal motivations and struggles (which are all perfectly understandable!!) makes you hurt for him, but his inner strength to carry on is obvious. They help each other in an extremely equal relationship that I personally think is a bit hard to find in Chinese danmei.

希望我们都能像对方一样勇敢 are words I WILL STRIVE TO LIVE BY. And it's not even the only notable quote in this book.

Finished it today; binged it in 5 days.

I have no words for how this novel makes me feel.

It's the best thing I've read in 2020 thus far. Do yourself a favour if you were like me and hesitating about reading it: DO IT.

I read this, and I loved it :) !!! I'm still looking forward to reading all of it in English. I like the relationship and dynamic of the story between our OTP. It's getting to the interesting part, and I will be patiently waiting for it.
