Such a wonderful premise, but such a short book! I'd just started to get invested and it was over.

And more to the point - nothing happens. Its a book purely done in exposition, and you get the the end and realise that pretty much an hour has passed in real time and nothing has happened to advance the story at all. An interesting device, but it needed to be done in tandem with some solid action/conflict/happenings.

Also find it an odd choice of artist. The strange story could have done with less of a chirpy, childlike Telgemeier-esque visual.
