I loved this!!! The imagery was beautiful. The color pallet used added perfectly to the story. I am not a romance reader but I could not put this down. It was sad and tense and emotional and just beautiful. I wanted to cry for the main character and just hug her and tell her it would be okay. I love how it was light but still dove into the emotions of a young girl trying to juggle relationships and the complexity of friendships. I enjoyed the mix of Chinese and Vietnamese culture and American Valentine's day. It showed how intertwined nationalities and traditions can be, depending on where and who one grows up with. Once the main characters grandma came into the picture, she embraced her nationality and culture and that is when she really began to develop as a character.
For someone that is new to the graphic novel world, this would be a perfect place to start!
