Another beautifully written novel by one of my favorite authors! Emma Saylor is divided between two worlds- the easy suburban life with her dad and grandmother that she grew up in, and the crazy, loud, busy life in North Lake with her mother's family that she found over the summer. How much can she learn about her mother and this other world before time runs out? ~ Reviewed by Jessie DeGarmo

Not an easy read for themes and there are no chapter breaks. There are a few spots where the story line takes a breath, but that is it. And that theme? How do you break up with someone who has broken up with you?” There is a lot going on in this 14 to adult graphic novel. Valero-O’Connell literally “paints” a picture of these characters in a manner that shows you who they are. Teens and adults should read this just to see “what is out there” for gender/sexuality stories but also, to read a story that shows how a relationship regardless who the partners are has its ups and downs and sometimes, no matter how good it feels, can be most toxic. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
