I’ve been waiting so long to read this graphic novel. To finally find out my library had it, and get ahold of it, was exciting. Even better was that I wasn’t disappointed. The story told here was absolutely beautiful. It made me teary-eyed more than once. I loved all the characters, and the dynamics of the relationships between them all with Morgan. The art was stunning. There were so many scenes where I just stopped and stared at the artwork for awhile. And the bigger messages throughout the story were wonderful.

Personally, I’d love to read more about not just the setting, but the people of it. Morgan and her friends and her family are interesting characters. And Keltie, of course. I could see so much more story there. But if this is the only one we get? I’m glad for it. It’s just… heart-warming and beautiful and I definitely want this on my bookshelf for future comfort re-reads.

Literally made me cry, it was so good. I love books w young gay Asian characters and accepting families. I feel like the angst brought it to a five stars for me bc there’s more hanging in their trust, knowing that the other will wait for them

Good art, the story is definitely one of those "feel-good" stories, with a bit of unexpected drama.  However, I really didn't feel the chemistry between the two main characters.
