In the near future, the federal government creates a committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. The libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves–the Library Forces!
Iku is witness to a disturbance during a Board of Education speech on protecting children from the danger of books. The perpetrators are two young boys protesting the banning of their favorite books. But while Iku wants to reach out to the next generation of book lovers, Dojo insists that they can’t play favorites. Will Dojo’s prickly insistence on sticking to the rules ruin their budding friendship?
In this one things heat up, with both love and war in the air! We start out with a story about two children protesting to protect their favorite book. It’s a nice change from the daily life at the Library, and definitely welcome when the next story starts. The second part of this volume is much more serious and dangerous for our favorite team.
Dojo and Kasahara both as stubborn as ever, fail to see eye to eye, but they do have some welcome moments of peace in this one. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next volume!
