This is quite unique. A graphic novel, and it is a novel do not be fool by the pretty pictures, with a scrapbooking, vintage twist. It is the box that makes the novel in this case. The story is not new, girl want to go to college, can't no money, goes to work, meets bad boy, miracle happens, college, New York, Paris, return of the bad boy, parent is dying, goes home, meets good, bland boy again who became succesful man, love, marriage, the end. Pretty conventional, but it's set in the 1920’s, she wants to be a writer, it's Paris of Hemingway, Sylvia Beach and Joyce. It's the dream like era right before the crash. It's conventional but with lots of background literarure history. And it's very pretty. The four stars is for the detailed, painfully historically, vintage box that captures the era the story is set in. The story itself well we have all read it before but not quite presented this way.
