For the first twelve years of her life, Ann Uekusa was just a typical girl living in Tokyo with her loving parents. When her father's business begins to fail, however, things begin to change. Her parents divorce and Ann and her mother, Miwako, are forced to move to the small, country town in Shimane to live with her grandparents. Being at the cusp of her teenage years provides its own type of problems, but Ann finds her life is filled with more pressing difficulties as she is forced to adjust to a family falling apart. Ann is not completely on her own though. Besides her strong-willed grandmother, Ann befriends Daigo Kitamura, a country boy who becomes her best friend, despite her having beaten the crap out of him on their first meeting. Along with Fuji and Shika, the children of the town's most prominent citizens, the four of them develop an unique friendship, with all the typical and atypical bumps and bruises that go along with teenage relationships.

How do series work?
To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.
Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.
Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."
What isn't a series?
Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).
Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
