In this deeply moving first-person story, a high school boy finds the diary of his classmate—and discovers that she’s dying. Yamauchi Sakura has been silently suffering from a pancreatic disease in school, and now exactly one person outside her family knows. He swears to her that he won’t tell anyone what he learned, and the shared secret brings them closer together. The two have very little in common, but they find themselves drawn to each other in Sakura’s final months to live.

The manga title is not really appealing on the surface and when taken at face value. I kinda struggled a bit to get past it but, when I finally decided to tackle it I was glad I did. The manga has a good story though without spoilers anyone can tell where it is going after about 4 chapters give or take. The characters both male and female mc show a lot growth up until it comes to an end. One thing that bothers me is I feel like for the female mc's friend they could of did some more story with her. For a support character so important to the story you would think they would show more than a few pages of story for her and less of her always raging at the male mc (or maybe this was her way of showing she cares...lol). The title comes to play an important part that connects both mc's on a emotional level and it hits home when it should. I would recommend reading this if you got time. It can be found almost anywhere, is completed and worth the read. The art style grows on you so don't be turned off at the start by it. The story more than makes up for it, if the art happens to bug you for some reason. :)
This is honestly one of the most touching stories I have read in a while. Everything about it gave the illusion of magic at work and it's what kept me on my toes while reading it. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a good manga to cry to and an awesome journey. The only problem is that its soooo short and leaves you wanting more!
