Follows a troubled teenage boy through the transformative years of high school as he redefines his friends, his interests, and his life path. When the boy's uncle, a police officer, gets kicked out of the family's basement apartment and transferred to the countryside, April moves in. She's college student, mysterious and cool, and she quickly takes a shine to the boy. The boy's own interests quickly fade away: he stops engaging in casual sex, taking drugs, and testing the limits of socially acceptable (and legal) behavior. Instead, he hangs out with April and her friends, a bunch of highly evolved "big kids" who spend their days at the campus swimming pool. And slowly, the boy begins to change, too.

This is one of the strangest books I've ever read (in a good way). Surprising at every turn and completely engrossing.

DeForge does it again. Probably the most interesting contemporary comics authors, a huge name of the digital age. This isn't really his first "graphic novel", unless they mean in print only (?), but it is a great addition to an already accomplished career.

Tiny print, usually on coloured background, makes it nearly impossible to read. Simple drawings, Fantasy themed narrative.
