The Wendy Project by Melissa Jane Osborne and Veronica Fish

Full disclosure: this is the first graphic novel I've ever read that was not a bound-up superhero comic. I never was really pulled into one; I never really thought of them as reading, honestly. But The Wendy Project was so beautiful, the artwork was phenomenal and so beautifully done so creatively done. The story was even more beautiful because it showed grief and how we all deal with things differently. Some people choose to cope differently than we do and we need to accept things no matter how hard it may be to do so. It doesn't make us "crazy" or "weird" just because we handle our grief just a little bit different than others would. Wendy, as a character, was just beautiful and complex. Her feelings towards her therapist changed At times she felt like the therapist was the only one that got it, but at other times didn't. Wendy felt as though she had to protect John because she didn't protect Michael. I think she is an important type of character we don't often get to see but would definitely like to see more.

Overall I highly recommend this and will definetly be read it again.
