story and made a bigger impact but it felt very open ended honestly I did resonate with the mother so very much you ll know once you read the book But I wantedplot,depth.The artwork though A I rarely write GR reviews, but I almost didn t pick this up because of some of the reviews I ve seen, so I wanted to add my five stars This is a quiet book Much of the action is observed rather than experienced by the protagonists, but the impact it has on them is deeply felt If you re looking for grand resolutions or boy did I learn my lesson closure, you won t find it here And that s exactly as

resolutions or boy did I learn my lesson closure, you won t find it here And that s exactly as it should be This One Summer beautifully and poignantly captures a particular moment in girlhood when we begin to understand the way the world sees women and begin to make our own judgments about how we wish to be perceived ourselves Watching Rose struggle with the idea of wanting to be a cool girl, and of what it means to be seen as a bad girl or slut isn t comfortable, but if feels wholly real The way she and Windy soak up the opinions and behaviors of those around them, the way they take those messages into themselves, and their burgeoning self consciousness as they leave childhood behind is honestly and painfully drawn, but never skews preachy And the idea that this book in any way condones slut shaming is utterly absurd There is almost nothing that I would have found enjoyable about this story, if it weren t for the beautiful graphics that brought it to life.Which is weird, because drawings are something I find quite agreeable to look at and, in graphic novels, it s usually the only thing that I really demand, along with a passable to good plot.But there was no plot in

s usually the only thing that I really demand, along with a passable to good plot.But there was no plot in this.Rose and her parents, as every summer since a young age, are spending the season at Awago, where there are beaches, fresh air and where she made a good friend, Windy She always has a relatively good time going to the beach and playing and gossiping with her friend This year though, her mother seems groggy and there is no eagerness in anything she s doing Her father and mom fight, and Rose is tired of it Tired of her mom In parallel, there is this guy whom she has a crush on that impregnated his girlfriend but doesn t want to take responsibility Rose hates the girl and pries hard for their relationship to be sabotaged The girl, her, is crushed Solidly crushed between choices and stress and the fact that she doesn t know what future awaits her.There is so much negativity in this book And drama A lot of drama It s deep, but it s also morbid and excessively sad by moments Who would have thought By looking at the cover, I was certain this was going to be a little bitatmospheric I did expect it too deal with serious life matters, but had no idea that it would be throughout the story Or that the two girls would be so unpleasant to read about.See, Rose is very judgemental and the way she talks to Rose, her friend, annoyed me many many times She seems to often be in her own shell even when her friend is around, which is not the end of the world, and I m not saying it s necessarily a bad thing, but, when that shell cracks, what comes out of it is not pretty and often unfairly reacting And it does crack.Windy is cute, in her own way but gets really childish all the time I don t know how old both girls are in this graphic novel don t recall it being mentioned but they were very immature Too immature They re always talking about grown up stuff sex, babies, blowjobs, parents, boobs and giving their opinions which sometimes are, yes theirs, but also most of the time unnecessary and seldom accurate.Like I mentioned, no plot Stuff happens, they react to that, we hear their thoughts, sometimes see a character scheming, cries happen, drama, drama, we get thrown into an impertinent scene, things aren t explained and, at the end, it all feels flat.I still know little to no information on Rose, except for her personality traits that I guessed while reading And she has no character development.Even though the story was not enjoyable, interesting or original, the illustrations are lovely drawn nonetheless and that s why I think it does deserve two stars instead of only one What can I say I notice pretty things wink wink A very low key, beautiful story with amazing artwork Also very Canadian.
