Charming and filled with pop culture references, it's told from Momoko's frequently selfish and straightforward first-person voice. There's an excellent English translation by Masumi Washington, a comedy movie adaptation featuring Kyoko Fukada as Momoko (for which she won best actress at the Yokohama Film Festival) and Music/{{Anna Tsuchiya}} as Ichiko, as well as a manga adaptation being published by Viz. Recommended for anyone with an interest in [[SliceOfLife slice of life]], Japanese pop culture, and [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship stories about friendship]].

Added DiffLines:

*DumbBlonde: Ichiko in the movie had bleached dyed hair, and not only cannot write at a high school level, but in her intro scene, spoke messed up {{Keigo}} so badly Momoko though she came from a period drama. Averted for Momoko, who also has bleached hair but is far more educated.

A Japanese [[LightNovels novella]] by Novala Takemoto, '''''Kamikaze Girls''''' ('''''Shimotsuma Monogatari''''' in Japan) is the odd tale of [[ElegantGothicLolita sweet lolita]] Momoko Ryugasaki. When her father, a small-time gangster, gets in trouble for bootlegging counterfeit Versace with the UniversalStudios Japan logo, the two are forced to move to rural Shimotsuma, Ibaraki... which, to Momoko's considerable chagrin, doesn't have a single Lolita brand store.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Western viewers unfamiliar with modern Japanese pop-culture would be surprised that Lolita fashion is not only a well-established trend long before the novel came out, but also that Baby The Stars Shine Bright is an actual, successful store popular within the fashion community, [[spoiler:making it shocking that Momoko chose to decline a job offer as a designer there at the end.]]

* MissingMom: In the film, Momoko's mother divorced her dad and ran off with the male OBGYN who birthed her. An unsual version, in that Momoko more or less encouraged this, since she wanted to live with her [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents dad]], despite them both knowing she would be better off with the mother.
