Every summer, Rose goes with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It's their getaway, their refuge. Rosie's friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different. Rose's mom and dad won't stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. One of the local teens - just a couple of years older than Rose and Windy - is caught up in something bad... Something life threatening.It's a summer of secrets, and sorrow, and growing up, and it's a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.This One Summer is a tremendously exciting new teen graphic novel from two creators with true literary clout. Cousins Mariko and Jillian Tamaki, the team behind Skim, have collaborated on this gorgeous, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful story about a girl on the cusp of childhood - a story of renewal and revelation.

3.5 "This One Summer" by Mariko Tamaki

Rose and her parents spend part of every summer in a lake cottage at Awago Beach, a small, somewhat rural summer tourist village. She and her summer friend, Windy, who has been her vacation friend since the age of 5,...

The graphics were okay, but I seriously got tired of looking at all the shades of blue by the time the book was finished. I did enjoy all the detail...

Not that I didn't like the realistic representation of different people (that was actually a highligh...

4.0 Book 107/100: This One Summer by Jillian & Mariko Tamaki

I especially loved the rendition of Windy, which perfectly captured that pudgy, just-before-puberty, before-you-start-to-get-self-conscious stage. Most of the story surrounds the dynamic between Windy and ...
