Getting Married and other mistakes could be subtitled The Story of the Sad Bride.

Every girl dreams of being a bride or does she? Is this the dream wished for her by others?

Barbara Slate attacks this question head on in her woeful and yet funny, sometimes quirky fictional narrative turns out to be all too true. Slate's vehicle to finding her own voice when her husband leaves her is drawn for our eyes quite clearly in this excellent graphic novel.

Whether you're divorced, happily married, or single, there's something to love about Slate's character Jo. I might have cried, I really laughed and I was definitely touched by this crafty gem of a book.
