BR 3-9: One Day

イメージ
This week, I read this book, "One Day." It include four families story in England, so it might be difficult, I thought. First story is about Jason. He lives with his mother, and has lover, named Maria. He wanted to be a student of art university. One day, he went to met Maria, but she talked about breaking up their relation. His story continues, and another story start... As I said before, there are four stories in this book, so it might takes us a few time more, but in final chapter, The four story will connect. No one die in this story (maybe), so we can read it easier than other serious stories of this series.
