Excellent, Young Adult, Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptical
This graphic novel is very inviting because it quickly piques readers’ interest. It invites readers to question the details and reasons behind all of the changes made to the post-apocalyptic California that Hill creates. The book is all in black-and-white with salmon as the only additional color, and the characters develop well. Ginny transforms from a long-haired feminine figure to a short haired, country-roaming, gang-facing fighter. Her bothers also develop and become more well-rounded. Overall, the book has strong themes of family and fighting the impossible to find what you’re searching for. This is a coming-of-age story for those who feel lost in a chaotic and monster-filled world.
