Full of weighty poetic language and dramatic sweeping brush strokes, this sometimes surreal meditation on growing up as a young woman will have broad appeal to even the most jaded millennial girls.

Felt like a collection of short stories as comics. Less slice-of-life and more surreal than I expected but I enjoyed it.

I really liked some of the more sci-fi based stories, they had a life of their own and felt like they had more momentum. I definitely liked some of the simpler colour palettes, although sometimes if Tamaki drew a single image across a whole page I felt like it didn't really read well.

I'd like to read more of her to get a better sense of her work. c:

A collection of intriguing slice-of-life short stories. They border on too abstract or oblique without crossing over, capturing very human moments, feelings, and experiences readers will recognize. An amazing variety of art styles and modes of expression. Compelling and poignant.

The author of This One Summer, which I absolutely loved, creates here a collection of short stories involving women and their lives. Each story is very different, yet I felt like I knew the women in the story. They were very relatable, and their stories seemed familiar to me, although distanced by the gender barrier. But I could still identify and empathize, and the stories resonated mostly as something true. Granted, I was the wrong audience for this collection, which really is written for and about women and who they are or who they can be. For that I recognized it as a wonderful work, although for me personally it wasn't great like This One Summer was.

Good, you should read it!

The drawings are attractive (but digitization has ruined the smooth lines). I found the subject of the stories to be light, shallow, and (too) youthful.
