Blue with Desire (Book Review)

Published March 2010
Blue is the Warmest Color - Julie Maroh B-

I had high expectations for this graphic novel.  I read a lot of glowing reviews of the book, while the film adaptation (which I hope to see in the coming weeks) won the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.  However, this lesbian coming-of-age love story didn't fully resonate with me.  The artwork is nice, the story is interesting, yet it all felt a little rushed and incomplete.  I'm very curious to see how the film plays out.
