Reading this book was like going back in time to the time of awkward teenagers in high school to the time of confusion to the time of the cruelty of puberty While I have to admit that my own slice of that period was uite easy I had plenty of friends who combined had the same sort of issues that A and E experienced Even though our high school was very tolerant some lesser fortunate kids were going through a subtler version of the conflicts in this book Following the through a subtler version of the conflicts in this book Following the of A and E was uite a ride as at times it brought back happy memories from my friendships at other times it made me jealous because I feel like I missed out in my life and yet other times it made me sad to relive the one sided relationships through them This is what really made the book for me the ease at which I was able to identify with the characters who are nothing like me at first glance I felt that the art A Touch of Persuasion (Men Of Wolff Mountain direction was spot on for this type of story Unconstrained and casual a touch unrefined much like we all were and still are The blend of comic manga and sketchbook styles Merey employed is uniue and forms a perfect symbiosis with the narrative sometimeseliberately rough sometimes genuinely beautifulLast but not least the font selection was for lack of better words cool The main font being very crisp and legible Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, despite the book being almost exclusively in ALLCAPS Asher Machnik is a shy effeminate soul who just wants his junior year at his new high school to go by uickly painlessly Terrified of being physically touched with a real phobia that makes him breakown and sweat Asher throws himself whole heartedly into his sketchbook escaping within his The Mommy Makeover drawings Unfortunately for him Asher s soft features and androgynous look make him a target for the school s ignorant bullies But it s this sameelicacy this fragility that The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives draws Eulalie to Asher as well He sifferent from anyone she s ever met before in a good but unexplainable way Eulalie Eu for short is seriously mad at the world and she s not afraid to show it Labeled as a yke and a freak by her fellow classmates Eu oesn t take crap from anyone But she also understands what it feels like to be alone When she First Blood defends Asher in the lunchroom the two strike up a fast forming friendship They re both outsiders they re both artists they re both Jewish they re both music fans but most of all they re both inesperate need of a best friend They need each other As the two get to know each other better Eu The Palliser Novels develops a crush on Asher while he meanwhile explores his sexuality and tries to overcome his fear of being touched But will Asher ever recognize that the person who understands him most isn t in some bar it s in Eu Or will E and A never get to realize what might have been between them This graphic gorgeous black and white novel perfectly captures the whirlwind blur that is high school From going toarkened bars that make you feel empty to concert halls with pounding walls Merey vividly portrays the challenges and emotional roller coasters that being a teen is all aboutThe art is impressive with great etail and attention paid to bodies and faces specifically eyes and lips Sometimes the backgrounds are blurred sometimes there are large chunks of text It is a slightly varied graphic novel experience than the one I ve experienced before although no less enjoyable I love that the story works on so many levels too This is a book where readers can read into the book however they likeAnd while there are some scenes and subjects that are hard to swallow and igest the book is ultimately uplifting in my opinion and it leaves a good taste in your mouth I was sad when it was over and haven This book was amazing I really loved it all the way through Eu and Ash were unbelievably real imensional and flawed in all the right ways I felt like they could be anybody They could have been people who I went to school with people who come into where I work They were that real Eu "Actually Reminded Me Of One Of My "reminded me of one of my friends from grade 12 in the way she talked an actedThe book expresses very well the confusion that comes with being a teenager Both main characters ance around the idea of gender identity and sexuality without speaking of it Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards, directly except in a few scenesThe book loses a star for three reasons 1 The Art This is a graphic novel emphasis on graphic but we ll get to that later The art is Asher Machnik is a teenage boy cursed with a beautiful androgynous face Guys punch him girls slag him and by high school he'seveloped an intense fear of being touched Art remains his only escape from an otherwise emotionally empty life Eulalie Mason is the .

One in black marker and "it s uite messy It takes some used to The first few sections were "s uite messy It some getting used to The first few sections were irritating to me and as a result I The Friend Zone didn t get much out of the first third of the book Some of the fonts are hard to read but if you take a second look it s easier I think a lot could have beenone to make this readable but it may have taken away from the indie feel of the book so I can see why the author made the Choices They Did 2 The LanguageSubject Matter I Got Pretty they Flying Scotsman Manual did 2 The LanguageSubject Matter I got pretty of all the cursing throughout I live a pretty sheltered life though Most people probably wouldn t notice it as much Another part of this point is a few scenes where sex occurs It s a book based on art so sex scenes are kind of weird to read but the authoroesn t really show much nudity or anything which is great Again I m a sheltered kind of person so this still struck me a little bit the wrong way 3 The Epilogue I feel like the epilogue took away from the power of this book If it had ended where it Alpha (Shifters, did before this last part I would have been much happierAll in all thumbs up A good read for ueer youth When I think about this book Ion t particularly think about the plot Yes it s about two gender nonconforming teens who become friends and consider And yes I was completely enraptured reading it sucked into asher and eulalie s lives Pretty sure I read this in one sitting And the story is important and the story is heartbreaking and the story is adorable and the story makes my chest swell just thinking about itBut ultimately it s the aesthetic of this that I m really obsessed with The feel of this is very zine like very homemade very collagey very out of the box as one of the cover blurbs says It s fully 85x11 and the outside cover is soft almost like velvet any paper experts want to tell me the right terminology for it Inside it s a wide mix some actual panels and Whalerider dialogue positioned I m not sure entirely what to think about this book Itoes some things very well Charlie Turns Into a T-Rex does some things very poorly and touches on topics that are frustratingly absent in 95% of most media The story is about a couple of high school kids who are androgynous The female character Eu is sometimes boyish looking but straight The male character Ash is feminine looking and bi sexual They meet as outcasts in the same typical high school and form a bond that lasts fora little bit The story focuses on the relationship between these two characters while touching on issues of sexual identity social acceptance andyouth promiscuity I m not sure about that last one and I suppose that s the toughest part of the book for me The male character Ash begins the novel with aisorder where he can not be touched It makes him vastly uncomfortable to have any contact with another human This is interesting but for the fact that after the first couple sections he apparently loses this aversion and it s never mentioned again Likewise his sexual identity something ambiguous from the start is basically forced on him Graphic Design For Everyone during a bathroom rape scene And yet that scene shapes him into a boy loving sex maniac This bothered me because I for oneon t feel like rape should be the genesis of someone s sexual exploration His reactions to this event are frankly baffling and I felt like it shaped who he became for the rest of the novel a Considering Kate (The Stanislaskis, deplorable pig Maybe not having been in high school for a long time particularly one where trans gender teens had any place Ion t know what it s like for these young people Maybe this book is an accurate representation If it is I worry because I feel like the teenagers Sweetland depicted in it with the exception of Eu is all around pretty great areisgusting people Their genders and sexual preferences have nothing to Art of Laurel and Hardy do with this It s their attitudes and actions that make themisgusting and I suppose that s why I Hers To Cherish (Verdantia, didn t find myself returning to the book with any kind of joy I finished it to finish it and was happy to beone I just realized that I never left a review as to why I DNF The Intelligent Entrepreneur d this novel And I know that it s not necessary but I like to leave one when I actually have a solid reason as to why I DNFI couldn t stand the art style It reminded me of when I was ten and trying out those really amateur anime styles that were all the craze in the 2008 2012 time period I really The Summer of the Ubume didn t like either character and I just couldn t understand what was going on The way the story Onely tough talkingyke from school who befriends Ash The only one to see and accept all of his sides as a loner a fellow artist and a best friend she's starting to wonder if ash is ever going to see all of her a e 4EVER is a graphic novel set in that ambiguo. ,
