Reviews

Bina's smart, likable, and familiar, and her coming-of-age fears are palpably engaging as she learns that romance need not be romantic.Larson has a wonderfully sharp eye for her characters, including a range of skin tones, sexual orientations, and body types.Aftermatter includes Larson's explanation of her artistic process and is sure to inspire budding artists. Altogether perfect. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Light purple washes contrast with thick, bold lines, creating an appropriate balance in a narrative containing moments of both emotive strength and fragility. Other symbolic visual elements, such as arrows and sound effects, add backstory and humor. --Horn Book

Heartfelt and authentic, this book tenderly captures the ebb and flow of love and friendship . . . For older kids and younger teens who love graphic novels and realistic fiction about music, friendship, and growing up. --School Library Journal
