Read in July, 2008

Hooked by prologue, got serious goosebumps reading first few pages to the final panel before the blank white page leading to chapter 1. Story of a girl losing her father, then her mother (she's out to rescue her), and having to hold the family together.

As an aside, caught the author at ALA conference and already read Daisy Kutter. He spoke of book 2, influences of Star Wars and pop culture, so that enticed me to pick it up.

Continue to see strong female characters (praise God!) with Kibuishi's work and can see Emily's determination sketched out subtly and not so subtly in each frame. May be good reading matter for reader adjusting to many changes in their lives but having to wait for book 2 is torture...
