A Review

This is a wildly gorgeous story accompanied by stunning art, and I fell in love at first sight. I had never seen a science fiction graphic novel when I picked this up for the first time, and it was a concept that I wasn't sure how to picture in my head, but Tillie Walden could not have executed it better. This is a wild space exploration and rescue story, but it is also so much more than that. This is a story about finding love, having it slip through your fingertips, and deciding to chase after it again because, quite simply, love is worth it. This is a book for everyone.
