When more letters continue to arrive, along with flowers and other gifts, Leah goes undercover to find out her sister’s secret. But what she doesn’t expect to find is a love of her own–and in a very surprising place! Winner of the Manga Academy’s Create Your Own Manga competition, Rivkah has crafted a beautiful and haunting comedy-drama that reminds us that there is no such thing as a simple love.”
