Sayuki is a 12~13 year old girl who is really fond of Shin-chan, a close family member of hers. Shin-chan doesn't go to high school but works at a garage and is the lead singer in a rock band.

When Sayuki hears that Shin-chan's parents are possibly going to get divorced, Sayuki's world seems to fall apart.


The book started out interesting enough, but when I got to the end, I was a little disappointed. I felt the ending was lacking.
After letting it sink for a few days though, I understood what the author was trying to tell the reader at the end of the book. I think you should read it for that reason alone. :)

I've read some of the author's other books and I could really tell this was the author's debut. It's really easy to read, a lot of conversations and not many descriptions. The author received a prize for this book. At first I couldn't understand why, but now it all makes sense to me.

In short, if you're looking for a quick, easy read that does more than just entertain you, then go for this!
