Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  ROrn
Kasumi is a self-taught magician. She loves to do magic tricks for everyone. On her way to transfer into an elite high school for celebrities and people with high connections, she goes into a forest with her father. In the forest she follows a firefly to a tree in the very middle of the forest. While climbing the tree, she accidentally falls, and should have been killed, but the firefly saves her. She passes out, and wakes up in her new home. When she gets to the school, she meets the super cool student body president, Ryuuki. She tries to talk to him, and angers his fan club. They give her a challenge: impress Ryuuki with her magic, or forever leave their high school. The magic show goes horribly wrong, in the process, Kasumi discovers she can turn invisible when she holds her breath, and the "firefly" might have something to do with it.

This manga is an awesome read. The words and illustrations work together perfectly to give off an amazing effect. The storyline is rich and full of detail. It kept me interested until the end. The illustrations are very detailed and precise. The characters are very defined and had their own separate personalities; none of them did anything out of character. I really enjoyed reading this manga and cannot wait to read the next one in the Kasumi series.
