Nisekoi: False Love, Vol. 1 (1)

Product Description

Imported from USA

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Raku Ichijo is the teenage son of a Yakuza (Japanese gang) syndicate. He is a romantic who has no
intentions of following in his father's footsteps. For over 10 years, he has carried a locked pendant around his neck,
waiting for the girl who has the key. As children, the two promised they would find one another again and get married.
The only problem? Raku forgot the girl's face and name. The romantic hero smashes into Kirisaki, a violent, loud new
girl at his school. He is assigned to help her get acquainted, but they soon grow to hate each other. On the other hand,
Raku has a best friend Onodera, a girl he wishes had the key to his lock. As if the boy's life wasn't angsty enough, his
father decides to calm down a fight with a rival gang by asking his son to pretend to be in love with the rival leader's
daughter for three years. The story flows well, but readers will wish that Raku and Onodera could simply tell each other
how they feel. Told in a typical manga format, the wide-eyed teens get extremely dramatic and angry when things do not
go their way. Still, kids will feel for the narrator and will find common ground with his desires to not be like his
father, and to find his childhood sweetheart. As the first title ends with a cliff-hanger, only libraries willing to
purchase the entire series should consider this one.—Sarah Knutson, American Canyon Middle School, CA
