Summary

Has Miki fallen too hard?

It's summer, and Miki Yoshida is learning all about love. Her senior year has blossomed with promise ever since she gained Hiro Sakurai's confidence. Now, she's resolved to keep his trust as he reveals more about his secret mission and warns:

"Don't get involved."

But Miki fears his work might do more harm than good, and she takes control--with disastrous results. How can trying to make things right turn out so dangerously wrong?

School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-Miki is falling, both out of a window, and possibly into love, in Spring. As the story opens, the Japanese high school senior throws herself from a third-story window. The reason is not given; readers know only that it has something to do with Hiro, a handsome and mysterious new student. After serious efforts to win his friendship, Miki discovers his secret: he is a Deliverer, a superhuman being devoted to preserving love. Crilley has made the manga style of art his own, focusing particularly on the expressive eyes of his characters. His use of panels draws the story forward by showing both movement and reactions intermingled. In Summer, Miki begins to delve further into Hiro's secret world of the Deliverers. In order to keep love alive, they rescue it from couples who are falling out of love before the spark is entirely gone. But watching love is dangerous territory, and though Deliverers and humans are not allowed to fall in love with one another, Miki and Hiro are growing dangerously close. Add a jealous Deliverer after Hiro herself to the mix, and their romance only becomes more complicated. Crilley's work with panels again enhances the storytelling (in a scene with a breakup, for example, one character's expressions are shown in shards cascading down one side of the page). Readers will be eager to find out how Miki's romance progresses-and how she meets the fate foreshadowed in the first volume.-Alana Abbott, James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT (c) Copyright 2010.
