The Prettiest Boy In School...Isn't A Boy!Japanese-American track-and-field star Mizuki has gotten herself to transfer to a high school in Japan...but not just any school! To be close to her idol, high jumper Izumi Sano, she's going to an all-guys' high school...and disguising herself as a boy! But as fate would have it, they're more than classmates...they're roommates! Now, Mizuki must keep her secret in the classroom, the locker room, and her own bedroom. And her classmates--and the school nurse--must cope with a new transfer student who may make them question their own orientation...Plus a bonus story, The Cage of Summer!

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 01, 2004 – Nakajo bases his shojo manga (Japanese girls' comic) on the common manga plot device of a girl dressed as a boy. Thirteen-year-old Mizuki Ashiya idolizes high-jump champion Izumi Sano. She somehow manages to transfer to his all-boys' school by masquerading as a boy, and becomes Izumi's roommate. Mizuki wants to see Izumi do the high jump, but is shocked to learn he quit the sport because he couldn't stand the pressure. Mizuki believes Izumi still loves high jumping and wants to high jump with him. Readers will be impatient for Mizuki to take Psychology 101 so she'll figure out what "high jumping" is a euphemism for. The story founders on its own absurdities. When Izumi sees Mizuki's back in the shower, she deludes herself that Izumi still thinks she's a boy, while he knows the truth but acts as if he does not. In a side story, a boy named Kaede comes to live with his second cousin Toko, who is outraged by Kaede's womanizing, until Kaede genuinely falls in love with Toko. Nakajo's visual storytelling is often cramped and confusing, and his drawing style is mediocre, although he does create attractive love scenes. This tale panders to the illusions of sexually na ve young girls who, one hopes, can discern that misogynists are not Prince Charmings and Mizuki is really an obsessed stalker. .
