This is an unusual graphic novel about a young girl dealing with a difficult issue in her life. She is not particularly likable, especially at the beginning of the book, but she certainly is interesting. So interesting that I could not stop turning the pages to see what in the world was going on. I loved the artwork, the sense of humor and the compassion in this book. It is a beautiful, bittersweet story that had me in tears by the end, but in a good way. This one is definitely a keeper, and I recommend it.
