Gingras brings out emotions of love, hate, disgust and so much more in this translation of her book. You will root for and even against our heroine Ophelia. You will love the language of the text and cringe at what is going on around the characters. Ophelia is a typical teen who is learning, growing, trying to hide and trying to find herself. The art work adds to the emotional tugging due to the graffiti like images, the realism and absolute surreal-abstractness all rolled into one. Sylvestre compliments the sometimes sensual and sometimes crude text with equally sensual and crude art. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
