kareshi kanojo no jijou by tsuda masami
miyazawa yukino has always been an over-achiever, intent on gaining praise.. she's smart, athletic, beautiful, graceful, nice, humble... an all-around model student.. in public, that is. it's a little... different... in reality.. ^^; upon entering high school, however, she meets her match in arima souichirou, possessing similar traits, adding in that he's a guy and from a good, rich lineage. his facade, however, is upheld by his need to honor his adoptive parents. well, the story is basically one of introspection, as they become their real selves and make friends with their own backgrounds..
