it was ok
bookshelves: graphic-novels

It's not often that I get a chance to show my cold-heartedness, but this review will be one of them. I just didn't care for the story of a young girl trying to deal with her mother dying from cancer. It's not my type of read. Now, before you go on and on about me not like graphic novels that are sad--I loved the Alex Award winner Stitches. But I thought the plot went on for too long before we found out about the mother--sure we know something is up, but we don't know it's cancer. I didn't like how the girl didn't have any real consequences for what was happening at school. I mean, really, she hit a teacher! And was involved in some pretty heavy duty fights! So, just not my cup of tea.

Emily I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt this way. I thought the fight scenes went too long, and they were too intense. I was really confused most of the way through the story because I wasn't sure what was going on with the nother. I'm glad we had similar thoughts.
