This story is started with an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent named Konoha Inoue. His life is quite normal, but only if one disregards the fact that he is a bestselling female romance writer. During his first year of high school he meets Amano Tohko reading a book. Tohko then announces that Konoha is joining the Literature Club. Two years later, Tohko and Konoha are still the only people in the Literature Club and Tohko is studying for college. One day his friend Nanase Kotobuki falls down and is hospitalized. Konoha goes to the hospital to see her, and finds his Childhood Friend Miu Asakura who also wants to be a writer. At that moment starts a story of drama, romance, and mystery as Konoha and Tohko confront Miu and his pasts to fix what was once set wrong.

* PatrickStewartSpeech: At some point in each novel, you can be sure Tohko will launch upon a lecture about a book that's relevant to the current situation, and in doing so will change how someone looks at the world. Because she's the Literature Girl, doncha know.

There are 5 animated adaptations: 4 of them being [=OVAs=] and the recent movie -- just note that they all adapt the last half the series, so if you're going to read the books, read them first. In addition, several of the novels have been adapted to manga.
