The Cherry Project
The Cherry Project stars Chieri, an excellent figure skater. But she only figure skates for fun. When three guys transfer to her school, and start the Cherry Project things change. Chieri joins a skating club and competes. But things aren't easy for her. She can copy others' skating, and can't always seem to help it. Finding a unique style is hard. Also, she develops a crush on Tsuzuki, on of the transfer students. But he is very cold towards her. How will things turn out...?
The Cherry Project is a sweet romance. It also is full of skating. (So if there are any skating fans out there, this book is for you.) I personally liked this book. Not only was there a love triangle there was adventure (the skating ect.) and I found the characters fun to watch develop.
It was created by Naoko Takeuchi. I don't believe it has been published in English. I'm not sure if an anime series has been made of this particular series. Though, I don't think so.
The Cherry Project "should" be okay for all ages... There isn't anything inappropriate.
