Half World

W - Hiromi Goto  Illustrations - Jillian Tamaki (Skim)

Let's start with the fact that this book is a novel, and not a comic.  There are sparse black and white illustrations, but the writing is so succulent that every detail was fully animated in my imagination.  I think that this is, ultimately, a coming of age story.  A tale of transition from girl to woman, body and mind.  The bad guy in this shit is straight vile.  His depravity is palpable.  He's just disgusting and gives me the heebie jeebies.  The main character is pretty whiny at times, but she man's up in the end.  Yeah!

3 out of 3 realms brought back together.
