El arte es hermoso, y las historias entremezcladas conmovedoras. Trata del amor entre hermanos, de la lucha de los demonios personales, del primer amor, de las dificultades de crear tus propias convicciones y de aceptarte a ti mismo.Claro que mi opinión esta influenciada por el hecho de que esta his...

There is something about the graphic novel format that ideally lends itself to autobiography. I don't know why that should be, but it is clearly the case. This is a work which is centered around a high school love, really a first crush and intertwined with memories of childhood in a stultifying fu...

Utterly captivating, powerful, and honest. There's something so real about it, that makes every poignant moment that much more so. The art is detailed and expressive, and it really helps set this book apart from others like it. This isn't a new story at all (not much in the coming-of-age sub-genre i...

I finished this almost-600-page-book in 2 sittings. Just couldn't put it down. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it just felt a little unresolved. Of course I understand its a memoir and there is no resolution in real life. Sometimes relationships just end that way, but it felt uns...

He deals with his family, his bullies, his hyper-religious community, and falling in love, all the while struggling to fit into God's kingdom. I'm not particularly spiritual, but I related...

It's semi-autobiographical and talks about love and loss and religion and growing up and it's a lovely read.

I know a lot of people enjoyed this graphic novel. According to goodreads, over 10,000 of you have given it 5/5 stars but I didn't see the greatness in it.My biggest problem with it were with the characters. There wasn't one I could relate to. Characters did things that I could not imagine ever happ...
