All Summer Long by Hope Larson (Graphic Novel Mini Review)

A kid really doesn’t get many summers… and Bina wants to make the most of hers. She figures the three months between 7th and 8th grade will be spent with her best friend Austin. But when he unexpectedly takes off to soccer camp, she’s left alone to figure out how to not get bored to death.

Bina is forced to get out of her comfort zone a little and finds herself experiencing some new relationships. She becomes an aunt, a babysitter, a #1 fan of a new band on the scene… and she looks deeper into her talent for music.

A view of some of the key understandings of adolescence. As awkward and uncomfortable as it is sweet and revealing. Low fi and understated, but brimming with authenticity and a pace of a summer to remember.
