I can always count on Raina Telgemeier. I picked this up last night because I was in the mood for a graphic novel and I read it in two sittings. There were so many interesting elements to this story, including Hispanic culture, magical realism, and cystic fibrosis. I also really appreciated the diversity of the characters. Cat and Maya are biracial (white hipster dad and Mexican-American mom) and I noticed Jewish (doctor with yarmulke), Asian-American, and African-American representation among the minor characters. I enjoyed the clear art style and easy-to-read lettering. I only wish that Telgemeier would write even more graphic novels!
Planning to release this book when I swing by later.
