First of an exciting new graphic-novel quartet for teenagers by renowned comic book artist Mark Crilley. Miki is intrigued by handsome Hiro, a quiet and secretive boy who has just arrived at her rural school. But Hiro is even more mysterious than Miki realises: as she overcomes his reluctance and slowly gets him to open up, she is drawn into an amazing new world. Hiro is a 'deliverer', a real-life cupid who keeps love alive in the world. He works full-time to maintain the balance, gathering the dying flame of love from those on the verge of breaking up and transferring it carefully to new couples. His private nature is an essential part of his job -- he is not sentimental about love, viewing it merely as a commodity to be distributed. But as his feelings for Miki grow, both their lives are going to get complicated!

Mark Crilley is from Detroit. After college, he spent several years teaching English in the Far East, first in Taiwan then in Japan. While living in Japan he wrote his first comic: Akiko on the Planet Smoo. The Akiko comics quickly became a success and in 1998 Mark was named one of the '100 most creative people in entertainment' by Entertainment Weekly. This led to a deal with Random House for a graphic novel series aimed at younger readers. Miki Falls, which draws on Mark's experiences in Japan, is his first graphic novel for teenagers.
