About this item

When Tohko learns that someone is vandalizing books in the school library, she immediately launches an investigation. After all, there is hardly a more serious crime imaginable to a literature-eating goblin! Of course, Konoha is pulled (reluctantly) into his capricious club president's latest obsession, and when the culprit is caught, his penance is to participate in a play that Tohko has decided to organize for the school's cultural festival.

Just as Oscar Wilde posited that "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life," Konoha begins to notice similarities emerging between the circumstances that led to the vandalism of the library books and the relationships borne out in the literature club's play. The sometimes-frightening ties between people force Konoha to reexamine his understanding of true friendship...but will Konoha's newfound openness only leave him more vulnerable to betrayal?
"Hey! There are pages missing in this book!"

One day Tohko borrows a book from the library, but there are pages missing--sliced right out of it. There's no way the Book Girl, who loves books so much that she devours them, is going to stay silent about this! Caught up in Tohko's rampage, Konoha and his classmate Akutagawa are even forced (though they have no idea why) to perform a play for the school's culture fair. But Tohko and Konoha glimpse the darkness in his classmate's heart and of the madness that has driven him into a corner. A soul stands immobilized, bound up by the mistakes of the past. Will the Book Girl be able to set it free?
