A deeply personal graphic memoir. I had to read it in one sitting as I could not tear myself away from Jarrett's world. His portrayal of his family and friends is so authentic and beautifully felt. This could have been a very different story, and that is testament to the strength of love. The style and feel of the illustrations match perfectly with the nostalgic feel. A must read for sure. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Anorexia is not a choice, it’s an all encompassing mental illness. When someone with anorexia speaks to you, it’s not them, but their disease speaking to you. This novel will open your eyes, and give you an understanding and an insight that only those with experience of the disease can give you. It’s written with the most beautiful voice, and in such a unique way, that you’ll fall in love with it as I did. It’s an important book, in that it opens the discussion into anorexia itself, and shines a light into it’s dark corners, but it is also a rich and enjoyable novel in its own right. Read this book, love it, and give it to everyone you hold dear, as it is a book to be treasured and demands to be shared. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Tana French at her very best! Her ability to draw you into a world is tremendous, yet seemingly effortless. The writing never feels overdone, and the story flows from the page beautifully, with characters so fully formed that you are completely invested in their lives. They truly begin to feel like family and friends, so much so, that when you realize there is a killer in their midst, the shock you feel is real. Set in the idyllic home of a beloved Uncle, one that has seen many summer vacations throughout our protagonist’s childhoods, we follow along as a horror is uncovered, and all that unfolds as a consequence. This book is a treat waiting to be devoured. Enjoy! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
