Absolutely effervescent, powerfully comforting, and downright wholesome 🥰🥰🥰 After watching the Netflix series, I had to pick up a copy of this first volume and it is just perfection. I can‘t wait to read the next one!

This is pretty much a fictionalized version of Patricia Highsmith‘s career shifting from being a comic book writer, a job she hated, to a novelist. It‘s a cool graphic novel, I really like the artwork. I don‘t think I would have liked her as a person though (the intro explains that she had a bunch of prejudices, quite problematic.)
Her kitty‘s name was Spider. How great is that?
Venkman approved.

When I looked back through @ReadingEnvy ‘s reviews to choose a book for #RememberingJenny, I was struck by her thoughts about the white space in this GN and how it could‘ve represented Claudette‘s marginalization compared with Rosa Parks. This is exactly why I loved her reviews.

I‘ll add that it was an interesting choice to keep all the characters‘ skin colors in flux (white and brown). Maybe it represents the equality they were striving for. 🤔

BarbaraBB Wonderful review 🤍 13h
squirrelbrain Great review! I looked up Claudette Colvin as I didn‘t know much at all about her, and it‘s really interesting to read about her treatment vs Rosa Parks. 13h
Megabooks @BarbaraBB thank you! 13h

Megabooks @squirrelbrain thanks! it really is, and being so young at the time of her protest, she gave up a lot as far as her choices in life in the following years. I hate that I knew so little about her until now. (edited) 13h
Cinfhen So interesting they shared the same last name - wonderful way to honor Jenny‘s memory (edited) 8h
Megabooks @Cinfhen it is interesting. I really enjoyed this book, and I‘m so glad Jenny pushed me to read it. 5h
Centique I remember her review of this too. What a good one to read in her memory 💕 4h
Megabooks @Centique thanks for organizing this, Paula. 💕💕 4h

Ahhhh!!! This book is far from perfect, I felt like it could clean up some with a few more pages but GOSH I LOVED IT. It's so soft and sweet and I loved the colors and style and would love to read more. I just want to see what the two of them are up to!! #queer #gay #fantasy #ghosts

So, it kinda frustrates me that there will be no more to this story. This one was a bit more “heavy“. It wasn't as funny with the little commentary on the bottom of each page. Also raised a lot about morality, ethics, and right/wrong. Overall I enjoyed it.
