A manga based on the novel is serialized in the seinen/josei manga magazine Beans Ace (this is a magazine for young men and young women)
Here's the cover of the first volume of the manga:

Since tha manga is based on a josei novel, its a josei manga (but the magazine Beans Ace is NOT a josei manga magazine, its a seinen/josei manga magazine. it has seinen manga and also josei manga)
