Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me

Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me - Mariko Tamaki, Rosemary Valero-O'Connell

This was a such an honest and unsentimental look at toxic relationships and young love, and how they can consume you if you aren't careful. It made my heart ache, but it was also sweet. The messages and lessons this book brings to light are important ones, especially for readers who are newly navigating relationships. I appreciated how universal the story was while simultaneously being a distinctly queer love story. The diversity in this book made my heart happy. The thing I enjoyed the most is probably the art though. The use of color, detail, negative space, and the way the panels are arranged on the page were absolutely wonderful. The art style was warm, emotional, and lovely to look at. I'm glad I picked this one up and heartily recommend it.
