Library Wars:Love and War:Volume 4
Library Wars: Love and War: Volume 4
by Kiiro Yumi, illustrated by Hiro Arikawa
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 and Commander Inamine are abducted by Bakushu-kai terrorists, who demand sensitive material from the library's protected collection in return for the hostages! Dojo is worried about Iku, his problem student with limited field experience. But what Iku lacks in training she more than makes up for in gumption, and she is not going to let library material go without a fight! (description taken from Amazon.com)
Aside from the fact that this series rocks because it's about librarians fighting for peoples' rights and freedoms...AWESOME...it also has a really great love story, full of tension.
What I really liked in this volume was how, when Iku's parents come to visit, everyone rallies around her to help keep her secret, even Dojo! I love when a character has a crisis and everyone bands together and that person can see how much they've come to mean to their friends, family, coworkers, etc.
This series just makes me smile all around.
