In this case, you can tell something about this graphic novel from the cover. The creator, Craig Thompson, has a talent for really making the most of the beauty found in simple gestures and the momentous significance that can be found in even the little moments in our everyday lives. The book has a mostly contemplative feel as the main character navigates the dark days of his adolescence and searches for meaning and human connection, but there are also moments of quiet humor and the story and its characters are never less than achingly true. Adults will love it and the concept of a misfit/soul-searching character trying to figure out his place in the world will defintely speak to some older teens ready to embark on the next stage of their lives. Simply beautiful.
