This is another series of manga coming from Tokyopop and is based on the story of Sey, a 16-year-old girl with a somewhat unusual mother who decides to move to Italy to finish writing her novel. She leaves Sey with a friend, Meja. Things get rather strange when it turns out that Terry, Meja's son, is not really her son at all but is her daughter, Hali.
Sey has a crush on one of her teachers who happens to be attracted to Hali.
Which, of course, is not the only romantic relationships that the novels cover. This is a really nice, peaceful series of stories that revolve around characters that are interesting and "real"; no super-powers, no psychic abilities, just "regular" people getting through their lives and their own "normal" problems.
It's all sort of like a soap opera, but in the best sense of the term. The characters are all done quite well, and it's interesting to see how they interact with each other. It keeps you wondering what will end up happening to each of them in the future, which, at least to me, is another plus mark for this manga.
