Midori drops her wallet on her first day of high school, but her new classmate Ichijo swoops in to help. She wants to thank him, but he’s part of a tight-knit trio and none of them are ever in class! Rumor has it that they all got expelled for acting up, and studious Midori’s actually at risk of expulsion, too . . . In order to help support her family, she has a part-time job, which is against the school rules. When the chairman of the school board catches her leaving work, he says he’ll let it go—but only if she’s up to the task of bringing the three boys back to school. Well, why not? It’ll be a piece of cake . . . right?

When you have a debt to pay and gotta ‘babysit’ three hot not-so-sweet guys, things can be tricky. However, when the right girl is on the job, chances are those guys’ life could turn upside down.

If Midori’s determination and perseverance is something those guys couldn’t anticipate, their kindness is what she would have never expected. Which brings up the question: are they really bad guys? Soon enough, the deal she made with the chairman of the school turns into a personal mission to stop the false rumours about them and, in the process, help them being more social. Although someone may not want that kind of attention . . . But the readers’ is kept constantly alive thanks to their different charm and Midori’s clumsiness and pure heart. So cute! Just like the most adorable corgi in here that you’ll find impossible not to want to spoil—when can I get one, too?

Interesting, sweet, and with a lovely art. A well delivered first volume that opens the door to a shōjo series that makes your heart skip a bit . . . Right, Midori?
