This is a sweet graphic novel about two androgynous bisexual teenagers figuring out whether they like each other or not that I would like to mail back in time to my 16 year old self who probably would have gone nuts for it. I liked that Eu and Ash were both very nuanced in their identity and not just standard bearers for gender-fuck, which is an easy way to go wrong with these sorts of characters. The ending seemed a little rushed after the leisurely pace of the rest of the story.

I do get slightly annoyed with fiction that makes a big thing out of music. Mostly because I have pretty eclectic taste. One of my favourite things about being long past my teenage years is 'what kind of music are you into' is no longer a standard opening conversation gambit. Someone trying to check out my mp3 player like Eu does to Ash would make me run a mile.

I was a little on the fence about the art work, but it grew on me and was quite beautiful in places, notably Ash's sketch book.

Can I finally say that how much I loved the lettering in this. It was ace.

Nicola McDonald I agree about the ending feeling rushed.
