Review quote

Predominantly black-and-white artwork complement this gripping, thought-provoking narrative...and the spare use of full color heightens the emotion of the piece. --School Library Journal, starred review

It's a rare graphic novel that dives into romance and dystopia, so this will garner a wide readership. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Slim-lined cartooning imbues a helping of personality, and...inventive page compositions keep visual interest high. --Booklist

This is a strikingly illustrated book set in a potentially massive world, and readers will hope this isn't the only story to come from it. --Kirkus
