FIVE TIMES THE TROUBLE
Five girls who want to do anything but study, and their tutor: A high school boy who’s got book smarts and not much else. Futaro Uesugi took the tutoring gig because he was desperate for cash, but when his students—the five beautiful daughters of a wealthy businessman—find five times the excuses to slack off, what can he do?!
