The setting is in Taiwan and the story is about a high school student name Xiang Wei Xin. She likes to eat and always feel hungry, but has limited school allowance to buy food (her mother only gives her 50 yuan). So, whenever there are food involved, she can be very gullible. For instance, she falls into a trap to join a guitar club with a promise that the club president will buy her breakfast every day.
Xiang Wei Xin’s best friend Fang Qi Ran is a famous student. Known for her beauty, a lot of guys are chasing her. One of them, Tao Yu Quan, try to get her attention by buying her breakfast every day. Although Fang Qi Ran refused it, this guy keep insisting to buy breakfast for Fang Qi Rang. In the end Fang Qi Ran accept it just to give it to Xiang Wei Xin. This happened for a whole year, until Xiang Wei Xin realised that the Tao Yu Quan is soon to be graduated from high school and she will need to confess and say sorry.
Turn out Tao Yu Quan knows that the breakfast was eaten by Xiang Wei Xin. And he keeps doing it because he likes how Xiang Wei Xin enjoy the food and slowly fallen in love with her. Finally, both confess each other feeling and become a couple.
For me, the idea behind this book and the title are great, but unfortunately it doesn’t deliver.
I started out thinking that this book would be one of romantic books that can give you those butterfly feelings, but apparently it wasn’t. The very moment I read the book, I felt dissatisfied and want to stop.
The story is flat and boring, with almost no strong parts. The only part that I thought “this is it, this is the part where the book is going to be interesting” is when Xiang Wei Xin was being fooled by a guy. But then that’s it, it’s just an illusion.
The story just goes back and forth of how Xiang Wei Xin is craving for food, and how she deals with her guitar club. The plot is lacking and failed to develop the romance between Xiang Wei Xin and Tao Yu Quan.
I give this book 2 from 5 stars.
