The three stars is actually an average. If I were basing the rating on the story alone, I would've given it two stars. Nothing happens to the author other than she spends six weeks in Paris with her mother shopping, eating, reading and visiting museums. Don't get me wrong- that sounds like a dream vacation, but the author's personal experience didn't translate into an amazing reading experience for *me*. It's kinda like you had to be there, you know?

On the other hand, the pen and ink drawings (and the side commentary on the drawings) are absolutely charming, nad I can honestly say this is the first comic book/slash graphic novel that I have really, truly enjoyed. Based on that, I'd have to give the book a solid four stars.
