Reviews

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Gr 7 Up-This graphic novel speaks to food lovers. Three senior girls begin school knowing it will be a year of last times. Nora, Lilli, and Iris all have different goals for their senior year. Iris is motivated to achieve good grades and extracurricular experiences for her college applications, Lili seems motivated to branch out and become a little more social, and Nora is motivated to enjoy every last minute of high school, without worrying about the future. In an effort to spend time with her friends, Nora creates Supper Club, where they will share good food and good times. Nora has high expectations for the members of Supper Club and models them with her own homemade treats and meals, showing she has a real talent for using food to create memories. Morrow excellently weaves nostalgic recipes in with true teenage problems as the school year progresses, and she throws in a little about mental health issues as well. With a message that everyone is dealing with something, the book successfully shows how, after a setback, things can get better with time. The illustrations are energetic and distinctive, showing off characters' personalities without readers even needing their dialogue. As a bonus, recipes are included at the end. Readers who enjoyed Raina Telgemeier's graphic novels will easily transition to Morrow's teen drama. VERDICT A solid choice for any middle or high school graphic novel collection.
"As good as your favorite meal. Friendship, coming of age, food, everything a story needs to be great." --AIPT

"Morrow expertly weaves together these individual stories, and their ties to each supper club offering, via emotive illustrations and well-paced storytelling. Morrow's bold, sketchy line art and rich, dense color palette, coupled with luxurious food illustrations that one can almost smell from the page, couch the story in cozy, familiar atmosphere, making for a heartfelt--and mouthwatering--tale. Straightforward, easy-to-follow recipes for the novel's featured dishes conclude." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The richly colored art is full of movement and personality, gestures and facial expressions bringing intensity to every character...Bursting with flavor." -Kirkus Reviews
