Being invisible can't be that hard, can it?

Unlike most people, 17-year old Hikaru Saito likes being invisible. Perfectly happy with her nose buried deep in her growing manga collection, she hardly notices how her "harmless hobby" is taking control of her life. But when she fails an important exam, Hikaru is forced to spend more time with her studies and her new tutor, fellow student, campus genius, and golden boy Takeshi Hinata.


Unfortunately for Hikaru, Takeshi's popularity in school forces the spotlight on her too. His adoring fans don't like seeing how much time they spend together and punish her for it. Luckily, Tetsuya Sakuishi, a new young and beautiful teacher, is always there to save the day for Hikaru. It doesn't help that his smile distracts her, however.


Like her tormentors, Hikaru cannot understand why Takeshi keeps showing up in her life long after the tutoring sessions are over. As if the complications of grueling exams and university applications weren't enough, a haughty socialite mother, an imposing business mogul father, and a princess-in-hiding all come bearing down on Hikaru. Through it all, Takeshi is there, looking at Hikaru like she's not invisible after all.
I joined the tour and with that I am bound to write an honest review. Whatever written below was based on the experience and things that I felt when I'm reading or finished the book.
I had two kinds of feelings when I read this book. At first I was really close to giving up and I feel like I won't finish the book. I was planning to switch from a review to another category, all I felt was this isn't the kind of book that I wanted and the story has a slow pace. I thought I won't be able to find the spark that I'm looking for. Fortunately, I didn't stop reading. I still tried reading it until I noticed myself enjoying the book. I started flipping electronic pages (I only have the e-book copy LOL) and I suddenly loved Hikaru and Takeshi.

"Everything is a choice"

So that's what I did. My choice was to continue reading. I loved the book. I was like reading a manga. And the manga/s mentioned in the book was the one I've read before! This was awesome. The slow paced story somehow makes the book more thrilling, for me now it was like you have to experience that first before getting to the point, it was like it's made on purpose. The middle part of the book is somehow promising and shattering, because there's this part where someone needs to leave, someone has to make a choice and there's this longing feeling. Mixed emotions up until the end. The twists are just so good, I hated some people like Eriko and the bullies but there are certain things happened in the story.

On the other side of the story comes Tetsuya, he's likable though, something in him that I wanted but sometimes I hate him too for being somebody for Hikaru.

AND! I'm happy for a good ending, though I was hoping for more I am sooooo looking forward to it.. the book left me hanging! not a bad thing tho but still.. I want more!

My name is Jay E. Tria, and I think writing about myself in the third person is weird. So I won’t do it here.

I am an author of contemporary Young Adult and New Adult love stories about characters that live inside my head, about people I’ve met and people I wish to meet. By putting them out in books, I’m letting you know them too. So I do hope you like them.

Blossom Among Flowers, a Young Adult novel is my first book, available in your favorite e-retailers :) My second book Songs of Our Breakup, a New Adult romance, is out now too:)

I am a blogger. I blog about most things I like, and I like many things, which would explain the many, varied categories you would find here.

I am a daydreamer, a reader, and a lover of T-shirts, skinny jeans, and adopted cats. I am not a cool kid.
