Things I Inhale:: This One Summer:: Graphic Novel

thisonesummer-cover

Hello friends! Today I’m not gonna write an introduction. I’m gonna go straight to the point of this post.Ha!

Lately I was reading good reviews about the graphic novel This One Summer. Many fellow bloggers mentioned it on their posts, among other choices that actually are my cup of tea, so I decided to give it a try.

I read the 320 pages of the story in one day because I was curious about the end of it and I didn’t wanna save the feeling it gave me for another day.

This One Summer was published in 2014 and it was created by the Tamaki sisters. Mariko Tamaki is the writer and Jillian Tamaki the illustrator.

Its gender goes under the realistic fiction category and it takes you into its world immediately. While I was reading it, I had a constant feeling of being there, in Awago beach, where the story takes place, surrounded by peasant, American teenagers and wooden houses.

Well, I’ll give you some clues about the story, without spoilers, I promise!

Rose and Windy are teenage, cottage friends that meet every summer. But this summer it’s different. They’re getting a bit older, they rent horror movies, they face some family issues , they have their first crushes and they get in the way of young peasants who came across their small world problems.

It isn’t some genius graphic novel that you must have in your library, but it gives you a very strong feeling of actually being there and it’s a good opportunity for an escape to another world. The story is well-written and the illustration is beautifully designed. Plus it is a summer story, very suitable for hot days like these. I recommend you give it a try, if you have the time.

Lots of summer kisses until next time!

Artemis
