Description

Mimi Stokes is an ordinary girl who dreams of two things: escaping her sleepy small town, and becoming a comic artist.

So when her dad's job uproots her family and lands her in a new school in a new country, Mimi is thrilled -- especially as her new friends (and foes) all seem like characters straight out of her favourite mangas and dramas.

Struck by inspiration, Mimi starts her first comic series, based on the lives of her school mates. However, drama usually has to be instigated, and before she knows it, Mimi soon finds herself meddling in their personal matters in order to get more ideas for her story.

But can anyone blame her, really? It's for the sake of her art!
