it was ok
bookshelves: 6-8grade, graphicnovels, youngadult
Read in September, 2010

The topic and the actual event are so much more powerful than the book itself. I find the narrative voice (supposedly a fairy young child's) unconvincing and slips into mere reporting for the majority of the tale. It does not move me in the least bit.

As to the graphic/art part of the book: I thought to myself, "Oh, the graphics quality will be improved, touched up, and finessed, and the face of the same character will be more consistently drawn so the readers won't be confused... in the final book... " ... but then realized that I WAS reading the published book, not an ARC.
