Though definitely NOT for younger readers (high school and above) this is an excellent graphic novel. The allegories are obvious in this horror setting dealing with teen angst, apathy, loss, and prejudice. It's certainly not a glossy happy 'cartoon' but it is very well done. It's also very well bound, the quality of the paper, cover, production is top notch and a great price for this book....

I had read high praise of this graphic novel, so I purchased it to see for myself. I can see how people might interpret it as surreal, but that's about it. It tries to be raw, edgy, etc., but really just ends up being meandering and boring. Sure, maybe that makes it a perfect symbol of the meandering, pointless confusion of being a teenager, but...there just wasn't enough substance for me. It was a great premise, but handled poorly, in my opinion.Read More

i have purchased 2 copies, one as a gift. i wouldn't recommend anything unless i felt it was pretty amazing. burns has a heavy hand at drawing but a very light touch when it comes to his ideas. the story is brutal and awkward to read. i sort of wanted to forget high school after reading this. its not for children - it isn't gratuitous in any way. but it would be lost on most kids unfamiliar with puberty or the growing pains of love and that need to get some serperation from what you are accustomed to.Read More
