    I rarely write GR reviews, but I almost didn t pick this up because of some of the reviews I ve seen, so I wanted to add my five stars This is a quiet book Much of the action is observed rather than experienced by the protagonists, but the impact it has on them is deeply felt If you re looking for grand resolutions o...

    There is almost nothing that I would have found enjoyable about this story, if it weren t for the beautiful graphics that brought it to life.Which is weird, because drawings are something I find quite agreeable to look at and, in graphic novels, it s usually the only thing that I really demand, along with a passable to good plot.But there was no plot in this.Rose and her parents, as every summer since a young age, are spending the season at Awago, where there are beaches, fresh air and where she There is almost nothing that I would have found enjoyable about this story, if it weren t for the beautiful graphics that brought it to life.Which is weird, because drawings are something I find quite agreeable to look at and, in graphic novels, it s usually the only thing that I really demand, along with a passable to good plot.But there was no plot in this.Rose and her parents, as every summer since a young age, are spending the season at Awago, where there are beaches, fresh air and where she made a good friend, Windy She always has a relatively goo...

    The huge bummer of the graphic novel is that someone labors for ages over their creation and then you sit down with your pint of Chubby Hubby and make mincemeat of the both of them within the hour I always feel a little awful about it, and this is probably the kind of thing the French have a word for the sorrow of beauty s brevity.Anyway it s hard to imagine a French word for the sorrow of beauty s brevityhollowing than the end of summer Those last days of August nearly slaughtered me The huge bummer of the graphic novel is that someone labors for ages over their creation and then you sit down with your pint of Chubby Hubby and make mincemeat of the both of them within the hour I always feel a little awful about it, and this is probably the kind of thing the French...

    This One Summer is worth a read for the breathtaking artwork alone Check it out Unfortunately, the story didn t do much for me I really liked the idea of a summer of firsts and lessons, but when it was all said and done, I don t really think the main character learned anything There s some slut shamming done and she never understood why it wasn t okay to say certain things Though her friend did correct her a few times, she seemed to just write it off The book also never felt like it actuall This One Summer is worth ...

    This story follows Rose s yearly summer trip with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach It s their getaway, their refuge Rosie s friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had But this summer is different This One Summer felt like a great summer read And even though the plot wasn t the most exciting, it still kept me flipping page after page Plus, the friendship and banter between the two main characters added some needed humor to the story Windy s dance This story follows Rose s yearly summer trip with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach It s their getaway, their refuge Rosie s friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had But this summer is different This One Summer felt like a great summer read And even though the plot wasn t the most exciting, it still kept me flipping page after page Plus, the friendship and banter between the two main characters...

    Possibly my favorite thing about this book is that it is blue.I mean, I love the plot and the characters and how the problems of growing up are presented and then not easily resolved like tying a bow I love that there are parents who have their own problems I love that the dialogue is spare and meaningful and that the art is gorgeous.This One Summer is a wonderful book.But I love that Mariko and ...

    This was a tiny bit of a disappointment The thing about graphic novels is that you have TWO giant elements the writing AND the art.The art in this book was phenomenal Absolutely wonderful I have not a single complaint There was a giant combination of different types of panels squares, rectangles, splash pages. and all of them were gorgeous And it was all purple I loved that it was all purple Very moody and lovely.The...
