In this deeply moving first-person story, a high school boy finds the diary of his classmate—and discovers
that she’s dying. Yamauchi Sakura has been silently suffering from a pancreatic disease in school, and
now exactly one person outside her family knows. He swears to her that he won’t tell anyone what he
learned, and the shared secret brings them closer together. The two have very little in common, but
they find themselves drawn to each other in Sakura’s final months to live.
