Konoha Inoue lives out his days as a normal high schooler, hiding his dark past as a best-selling author who wrote under the guise of a 14-year-old girl. A member of the literature club, he writes improv stories that serve as snacks for third-year student Tooko Amano, the only other member of the club and a self-styled "book girl" who literally eats written words. Konoha is forced to tag along with Tooko as she seeks out strange, literature-filled cases to investigate.

I didn't really like the first vol... And I don't think I will like next vols too (if I actually read them).
- The best part about this novel is that the author writing is amazing! It has very smooth flow to it, which makes it so addicting to read.
- It's core concept is unique, creative even and this will continue with the rest of the vols, 𝘣𝘶𝘵...
- The execution of the core concept is okayish at best.
- Most of the twists/reveals are badly done, very rushed, not given inof time to feel them (these type of twists/reveals need a lot of ...
