This One Summer, by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki

“Mariko & Jillian have teamed up again to create a bittersweet coming of age graphic novel. While on a summer vacation at the lake with her family, as always Rose spends the days with her friend Windy. But this year feels different. They’re sorting out big questions, taking cues from teens and adults around them who may not make the best role models. Rose is the eye of the storm in the growing conflict between her parents, while she and Windy binge-watch horror films and absorb disturbing messages from the older teens at the lake. The subtle and emotive illustrations pull you into this dream-like read that feels at once remote and intimate.” – Kate
