Orange: The Complete Collection 1 is the first manga I’ve read, so it took a bit for me to get used to reading from right to left. Once I got the hang of it, I got sucked into the story. Naho is 16 and begins receiving letters from her 26-year-old self. What she originally thinks is a prank becomes too real when the letters from the future predict specific occurrences in her life. There’s a new student at school – Kakeru – who future Naho wants to protect. Present day Naho has to heed the warnings in the letters to save Kakeru from his future, but sometimes she gets in her own way. The book questions whether what happens in the past actually affects the future, or if there is a parallel universe where the past and present don’t eventually collide. Good for 6th grade and up.
