Throughout the deepest reaches of space, a crew rebuilds beautiful and broken-down structures, painstakingly putting the past together. As new member Mia gets to know her team, the story flashes back to her pivotal year in boarding school, where she fell in love with a mysterious new student. Soon, though, Mia reveals her true purpose for joining their ship—to track down her long-lost love.

An inventive world, a breathtaking love story, and stunning art come together in this new work by award-winning artist Tillie Walden.

So, you got a queer sci-fi coming of age story. But also a queer young adult epic. Then you have this amazing drawing style that turns everything soothing and cosy. Hence, when the drama happens doesn't really mess up with your brain. Which is a plus, I believe, nowadays.

Cute, long, Found Family Sci-Fi Comic

I swear I at least started this at some previous point, because I REMEMBERED the first part of the story, but I don't know if I didn't finish it before the library wanted it back, or if I just forgot the second half of the book.

Il est deux heures et je laisse les images défiler sur l'écran, encore et encore. Chapitre 2, 3, 4, 5. Passé et présent, anachronismes et traditions, tout s'emmêle de plus en plus. Une pépite. Le style graphique est rafraîchissant, les couleurs travaillées et le jeu d'ombres et de lumières éclabousse les cases. Cases qui s'affolent parfois et explosent l'une dans l'autre. Magnifique.

Il est cinq heures du matin quand je clos le dernier chapitre. J'émerge brutalement. Bam ! À la manière d'un poème qui se déploie, je …
