The thing I most liked about this graphic novel was its unpredictability. When I would think the story was heading in one direction, it would start to reveal itself as something completely different. The ending in itself is pretty shocking. As a complete story, I really found it intriguing and an interesting study in how to read, predict, and draw meaning. I did feel that with its language and pictures that some young adults might find it offensive, so as a teacher I'll be careful about who I recommend it to. As a complete story though, it was pretty amazing. If you're geared up for a different kind of story, this is a graphic novel you ought to check out. I really hope that other books of this style come out soon!
