Like a briny tidal pool, Grant's seaside coming-of-age story teams with odd creatures, animal emotions and childlike wonder. Its marvelous artwork and enticing depths should be navigated again and again. Too early to be one of the best books of the year? I think not. — Charles Bottomley
Blue is the debut graphic novel of Australian cartoonist Pat Grant. Part autobiography, part science fiction, Blue is the story of three spotty teenagers who skip school to go surfing, only to end up investigating rumors of a dead body in their beach town.
