Last Saturday when my son's school had open house,I was able to see his Japanese class.
His teacher told them to split a long story into 4 paragraphs and summarize them.

As far as I know it was not a famous novel.
An up-and-coming novelist must have written it.
I thought school textbooks nowadays cover a lot contemporary novels to attract younger students.

The story goes that one boy encounters one girl who is nearly the same age as him,he somehow feels sympathy for her as she looks unhappy.
He ends up regretting that he couldn't speak to her on the spot,but after a while he musters up enough courage to meet her.

It is a good story for adolescents.
In the class they summed up each paragraph and titled each section while seriously paying attention to their mothers behind them.
