I got the same feeling with this book that I did with "A Monster Calls", it was good, but not great.
It is the story of a girl named Barbara who thinks she fights giants, the giants being a metaphor for something else of course. Her big sister is taking care of her and her brother, but Barbara does not have the best relationship with them as of late. Something has happened that has distanced them.
It is a very well drawn piece of work, all in black and white. It might have been much better with coloured pages, but it was not too much missed. I disliked the main character, and the reasons I disliked her, where the same reasons that I understood her actions, because that made what was happening seem all the more real. That is the trait of a good unlikable character, I am glad they got it right.
If you liked "A Monster Calls", you will like this, and vice verso, or you will be bored of reading the same thing.
