Reviews
"With its vintage aesthetic and emotive sketches, this explores the poignant uncertainties of growing up. An evocative tale reminiscent of Jillian and Mariko Tamaki's This One Summer (2014), this book is a great match for teens searching for community, purpose, and the possibility of existing just for the sake of it." --STARRED REVIEW, Booklist

"Deep emotions emerge throughout this journey. . . . [A] way to reframe how [readers] see the world when facing a crisis, making it a purposeful purchase for social-emotional learning." --School Library Journal

"Evocatively captures adolescent earnestness and idealism for living meaningfully." --Kirkus Reviews

"[A]n absorbing coming-of-age story." --CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"[A] melodrama of independence and reliance, where trouble becomes a key unlocking the past." --Comics Beat
