This book is based on Lin Yi-han’s novel Fang Si-qi’s first love paradise. It tells the story of a 11-year-old girl being raped and sexually abused by her literature teacher during extra course. She couldn’t bear the betrayal of literature as a tool for such atrocity. She decided to fall in love with him. The novel was speculated to be based on Lin’s personal experience. After the novel was published, she committed suicide at her apartment in Taipei on April 27th, 2017.
