Honestly, this book is funny. I’ll be reading the rest of the series in due.

Three university fresh-women. Ready to face the world and all the drama that comes with it. Well, not all drama, Susan wasn’t expecting McGraw to show up on campus. Experimental drugs. Cough and cold remedies. Crushes. Love.

The diversity of characters in this story is a breath of fresh air. There is no “one type”, which makes each character a little bit more relatable. The cry for feminism is definitely here, watching young women take on the world with very little need of their male counterparts. Giving young readers a view that they don’t need a man to get the job done right. The vibrant colors and full-of-expressions characters definitely make this English graphic novel even more appealing.

Highly recommended especially if you enjoyed graphic novels like LumberJanes and Squirrel Girl.
