Following 12-year-old Sei’s abrupt and unfortunate introduction into puberty, he discovers the beautiful and elusive, Nao, a girl one year his senior. Falling head-over-heels, Sei tries to find a way to confess his love to Nao, in this humorous but touching account of growing pains which all men can relate to!
