Abstract:

"With the success of their performances of the play 'The Rose of Versailles', the class decide to do a riff on 'Romeo and Juliet.' Nitori-kun and Chiba-san write the script together, but Chiba-san has an agenda: she wants to play Romeo, with Nitori-kun in the role of Juliet. But Nitori-kun wants the male-idnetified Takatsuki-san to play Romeo. With her usual prickliness, Chiba-san force Nitori-kun to confront a question he's been avoiding. Are his feelings for Takatsuki-san those of a boy for a girl, a girl for a girl, or a girl for a boy. Our protagonists also face unwanted changes to their growing bodies: Takatsuki-san discovers the wonders of 'breast binders, ' and Nitori-kun explores the limits of his ability to 'pass'"--Page 4 of cover.
