Skim isn't completely was I expected but it kinda was.
I just started reading graphic novels and Mariko and Jillian Tamaki have quickly become my favorites! I first read "This One Summer" and now "Skim". LOVE, LOVE the illustration style in both books and the story lines (both coming of age stories) are so real and thoughtfully written. I know I will return to these 2 books over and over again.
This graphic novel was praised almost universally in reviews, and but has still remained somewhat under the radar of the public.
Wonderful graphic novel. Beautiful imagery, pace, and characters. It's like what a good high school movie wants to be but never is. Ideal to read in late summer/autumn if you read by the season like I do.
Item was as described and arrived quickly.
Lovely Book, and a great read. The artwork is stunning. I had to buy this book for a class along with some others, and this is the only one I kept.
This is very cute and real but I preferred This One Summer because of the art.
This is the second book I've read by the Tamakis, and I think they write fantastic graphic novels about young adulthood focused specifically on teenage girls. The art is whimsical, haunting, and beautiful, and the writing matches the art.
