Synopsis: “We lead lives of silence and loneliness, extending our hearts to each other as holograms displayed on glowing computer monitors. We escape to wonderful fantasy worlds, only to return to reality and find the same emptiness waiting for us over and over.”Romance.” That’s what Trevor Scarborough wants to find. “Or at least something approximating romance…” One day, a mysterious wheelchair-bound girl enters his life and changes it forever. Their two holographic hearts become intertwined forever, for better or for worse. Koji Kojou’s third self-published book is an exploration of concepts like love, loneliness, and coming to terms with the bitter side of reality. This reality-warping bittersweet romance also pushes genre boundaries, occasionally switching perspective and taking inspiration from other genres. It aims to make readers both think and feel at the same time.
