Plot Summary: For the first twelve years of her life, Ann Uekusa was just a typical girl living in Tokyo with her loving parents. When her father's business begins to fail, however, things begin to change. Her parents divorce and Ann and her mother, Miwako, are forced to move to the small, country town in Shimane to live with her grandparents. Being at the cusp of her teenage years provides its own type of problems, but Ann finds her life is filled with more pressing difficulties as she is forced to adjust to a family falling apart. Ann is not completely on her own though. Besides her strong-willed grandmother, Ann befriends Daigo Kitamura, a country boy who becomes her best friend, despite her having beaten the crap out of him on their first meeting. Along with Fuji and Shika, the children of the town's most prominent citizens, the four of them develop an unique friendship, with all the typical and atypical bumps and bruises that go along with teenage relationships.
