This book was actually written in Japan and was first published in Japanese. It has only been available in English for a few months, but SOCRATES IN LOVE is the best-selling hardcover of all time in Japan. This book is like the Japanese version of THE NOTEBOOK.

In this story, Sakutaro, an average high school boy, falls in love with a girl named Aki. They grow into an inseparable couple and they do everything together. Aki and Sakutaro have some wild adventures, and fall into true, head-over-heels love. They plan to get married and have children together until Aki is diagnosed with leukemia. They don't know what they will do without each other when she is gone. These are the kinds of characters that you want to see succeed and be happy.

I liked this book because it has such an amazing storyline and the characters are so well introduced that you feel like you know them. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read about true love, whether they are male or female, as everyone can truly enjoy this book.

Japanese version of "Love Story" set in high school. Not your regular happy upbeat shojo stories.
