Never Give Up Vol. 1 by Hiromu Mutou

Never Give Up Vol. 1
Hiromu Mutou
1999, Tokyopop Inc., Los Angeles

Teenage manga about a boyish girl (Kiri) in love with a girlish boy (Tohya). Tohya becomes a male model and, in order to be close to him, Kiri becomes Tatsuki, a male model, herself. And it gets more confusing from there.

I thought it was pretty good ... and have a new favourite line "No, that type of thing only happens in Manga"!

It took a while to get the characters straight, but I think that was intentional. And it is a teenage story, so it's very melodramatic and a bit unbelievable, but it's manga, so that's a given.

Now I want to see what happens next!!!
