Why it's This One Summer, by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki! Published in May and already receiving acclaim, This One Summer is a beautiful, intelligent coming of age story focused on a preteen girl old enough to witness the angst surrounding her, but not quite old enough to be invited in. Mariko Tamaki's slow burning tension and unromantic nostalgia is perfectly matched by Jillian Tamaki's purple ink washes and character-focused illustrations. This event will be hosted by store staffer Marcela Huerta.
Oh, et une chose de plus: la version française de This One Summer, Cet été là, est maintenant disponible!
