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.
