"One of the Outstanding Comics of 2015." - Village Voice "It looks, with eyes wide open, at the teenagers who are awkwardly - and sometimes, due to the increasing availability of heroin, dangerously - coming of age in Manchester's thumping music scene." - Katie Haegele, The Believer "It's a coming-of-age tale if there ever was one." - Frank Santoro, The Comics Journal "It feels personal, and intimate in a way that belies its status as fiction." - Tim O'Neil, Onion AV Club "Mardou's black-and-white line drawings are expressive, focusing primarily on the interactions between characters but also capturing moments of solitude in a spare but effective way." - Eva Volin, Booklist "If the biggest problem with a book is the fact that I didn't like that it ended, I'd call that a success." - Kevin Bramer, Optical Sloth "Mardou pens a compelling story ..." - Lady Collective "The tale is broad in its thematic scope, covering everything from religion to drug use to teenage relationships and the search for one's place in the world." - Joshua K. Connelly, Riverfront Times "Mardou does a wonderful job of capturing the aimlessness of this in-between age, as well as its unexpected joys." - Publishers Weekly "Mardou's narration is wonderful. She paces the story quite well making every page feel intimate and personal." -- Dustin Cabeal, Comic Bastards
