Judging a book by its cover...

This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki
This One Summer

By: Mariko Tamaki

Genre:  YA graphic novel

Pages: 319

Published: 2014

Read: August

2 out of 5

As many times as you are told “Don’t judge a book by its cover”; people always will – myself included. The illustration and coloring on the cover was exactly what attracted me to this graphic novel. The blue purplish coloring throughout this book was the best aspect of the story. Even though the premise and events that took place were interesting and teens may relate to them; I didn’t see any of them being resolved by the end. Whether in a positive or negative light, you are left with too many open questions. Readers want a resolution or a sequel, this book foreshadowed neither. There are several better YA graphic novels I would recommend reading.
