Two girls in a small town in the USA kill time together as they try to get through their days at school.
They watch videos, share earbuds as they play each other songs and exchange their stories. In the process they form a deep connection and an unexpected relationship begins to develop.
In her follow up to the critically acclaimed The End of Summer, Tillie Walden tells the story of a small love that can make you feel like the biggest thing around, and how it’s possible to find another person who understands you when you thought no one could.
“It fills your heart up with joy and then breaks it into a million tiny pieces… the most beautiful comic book you can have in your collection.” – Charlie Humphries – Pipedream Comics
“I cannot recommend this more highly. One of my books of the year.” – Tony Esmond, Down The Tubes
“Walden clearly is a great draftsperson, but these slice of life comics among the depths of the Grand Canyon, snow-covered mountains, or hot middle of the country roads are at times transcendent.” – Alex Hoffman, Sequential State
