Both my 12 yr old son and 7 yr old daughter love it Great YA graphic novel. So it s up to Bina to see how much fun she can have on her own At first it s a lot of guitar playing, boredom, and bad TV, but things look up when she finds an unlikely companion in Austin s older sister, who enjoys music just as much as Bina But then Austin comes home from camp, and he s acting even weirder than when he left How Bina and Austin rise above their growing pains and reestablish their friendship and respect for their differences makes for a touching and funny coming of age story My daughter thought the story was pretty good but she wasn t in love with it She didn t like that the entire book was all the same color of that ugly blue She prefers her graphic novels to be in regular color or even black and white She said she wouldn t read it again so we will donate to the library. It was ok at best. My granddaughter loved this book Delightful book. My son likes this book A kid really doesn t get many summers and Bina wants to make the most of hers She figures the three months between 7th and 8th grade will be spent with her best friend Austin But when he unexpectedly takes off to soccer camp, she s left alone to figure out how to not get bored to death.Bina is forced to get out of her comfort zone a little and finds herself experiencing some new relationships She becomes an aunt, a babysitter, a 1 fan of a new band on the scene and she looks deeper into her talent for music.A view of some of the key understandings of adolescence As awkward and uncomfortable as it is sweet and revealing Low fi and understated, but brimming with authenticity and a pace of a summer to remember. The art work was poorly done, very little color The story line was okay but pretty boring and predictable Homosexual marriage is part of this story as well.
