A fun new graphic novel about a young girl who doesn't fit in. I loved the main character Courtney. She is cynical, smart, and cool. The story is interesting and dark. It takes place in an old creepy mansion in the ritzy part of town. Courtney has just moved into her Uncle's place with her idiotic parents, but cannot seem to fit in, even though she doesn't try very hard.
The biggest problem I had with this book is that they seemed to drop plot lines right as they got interesting. Someone gets eaten, oh well! Must save the baby, who can be bothered! Your life has been stolen, go away...okay! I don't understand. Maybe if Mr. Naifeh used the entire novel for one plot line it would have been a more developed story.
On the plus size it was a very fast read and the illustrations were great. As other reviewers stated, I am not sure why Courtney is noseless. Very strange...
