review 1: A young man is thrust into memories dripping with conflict and guilt when he sees a girl he knew in high school; meanwhile, one of his friends searches for the stalker who's been sending mail to her house addressed to a previous tenant.I love Kim's art style and his expert depiction of character expressions!Story was alright. I was more interested in Nancy's investigation, which left me wondering what was going to happen next.
review 2: I love that Derek Kirk Kim shared part of his creative process in the Afterword of this book. I feel grateful and lucky to see some of his early sketches and thumbnails that he used to hash out his ideas, the development of the characters, and the photographs of the pho restaurant and beach, which inspired him. His inclusion of

The introduction made me smile in excitement, and grateful for its happy uniqueness. It is fun & smart. The story held my interest. I read it in one sitting, quite absorbed to see the outcome and the moral. The book has me happy to know a little about Kim, grateful that he shared, and I find myself now rooting for him in anything else he has done or chooses to do. Thank you for sharing this! less

Lovely details, both visually and linguistically. My kind of comic book.
So excited that this is my "World Book Night" title to give away.
