Interesting I guess
Catching up on graphic novels I always wanted to read. Either because of the movie which I didn't know said movie was based on a graphic novel or heard a lot about said graphic novel and just now finally getting around to reading it. So anyway, I remember seeing the movie a lot whenever it was on TV and thought it was an okay but not that bad of a movie.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

After reading this, it does make me want to revisit the movie again. I mean it has been a long time since I last saw it but I recall the story and its characters I guess. I also thought at the time that Thora Birch would of been a good Daria or Janeane Garofalo.
So about the graphic novel, yeah the art is something to get used to. The story and characters are there, a little different from what I saw in the movie but still. Interesting is all I got to say for this one. Give this a read if you've heard of it because of the movie or while looking for graphic novels to read or something. Interesting read I guess.
I really appreciate the artwork in this book along with the odd color scheme. Unfortunately, the artwork is the most impressive feature for me. I find the book lacks a storyline until about halfway through, and when the story finally shows up, it is nothing out of the ordinary. Perhaps it is because I moved many times growing up, and I am accustomed to saying goodbye to friends, which happens to be a key aspect of this story. I went into this book expecting it to be funny, and to me, it was not. Overall, I find the book simply average because I have read graphic novels that are worse and several that are equal or better than this one.Was this review helpful?
