Reviews

Greyscale, clean lines, and distinct framing are evocative of a Hitchcock film and allow the character moments to really shine. Northranger retains Austen's spirit with an insightful love story. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)Readers be warned: only pick up this book if there is time to finish it in one sitting. -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)An emotional coming-of-age romance that is darkly and dramatically imagined. -- Kirkus ReviewsIndigo's limited color palette and expressive character design imbue the narrative with a warmth and sincerity that skillfully complement the themes addressed. Terciero handles instances of homophobia and prejudice, contextualized by an opening content warning, with forthright realism, imbuing this lightly speculative read with intense emotionality. -- Publishers WeeklyThis delivers a contemporary retelling of a classic story to a new generation of teen readers. Terciero artfully utilizes the horror genre as a metaphor for the young queer experience in modern-day Texas. Indigo's maroon monochromatic artwork throughout matches Terciero's tone, evoking a satirically ominous feel. Perfect for teens searching for acceptance--or a cowboy or two. -- BooklistA heartfelt romance that captures the experience of growing up queer in �rural America, this is recommended for all �graphic novel collections. -- School Library Journal
