Can you change who you are inside? In middle school, Futaba's shy nature and cute appearance attracted boys, but made other girls so jealous that she became a social outcast. So, when high school began, Futaba remade herself, becoming sloppy and pretending to be unfeminine... and now she has friends! But her new world comes crashing down when she runs into a boy she used to know: Kou. The one boy who could have become more than just a friend. Except Kou's changed as well. So much so that she barely recognizes him. And while the attraction that she used to feel seems to still be there in her heart, he doesn't seem to feel the same way anymore. Or does he? Is the difference in the way Kou's acting due to how different she's ostensibly become? Or have they both changed too much to ever recapture what they had? What goes around, comes around, as two young people rediscover each other and their own true selves in BLUE SPRING RIDE.
