This one is probably better than I think it is. Yaya is a shy girl trying to fit in with a popular group at school. They tease her mercilessly, steal from her, manipulate her, and occasionally even beat her up. But she's too insecure to believe that they're actually being mean to her, chalking it up instead to her own flaws and harmless oversight. Then Nana enters the picture. She's everything Yaya isn't and gives the other girls a taste of their own medicine. The turnabout is cool, but, for me, it wasn't worth reading page of Yaya being abused to see it. Reminded me a little too much of my own high school experience. There are healthier ways of surviving high school that developing a second personality. Trust me.

This is an awesome story of a meek girl that's getting pushed around by so called friends and her split personality that's not going to stand for it anymore. Yaya is getting abused by her own friends, but when she sees her own reflection she switched to her split personality Nana, a take charge kind of girl. The only problem, after it happens, Yaya is clueless about everything that goes on. Is this a god-sent or a curse? Either way it makes for a new twist on the story of a girl going through those awkward high school years.
