Blankets – Craig Thompson

This graphic novel was beautiful.  The story was touching and very well crafted. It’s a story of growing up, your first love and the challenges that come with being in a very religious family. We follow the author Craig as he’s growing up, this is semi-autobiographical, realistic-fiction, some parts actually happened and some are made up as they make for a better story. The art work is great, a little rough, which makes it compelling.  The book is thick, but the story was so good I couldn’t put it down and read the entire thing in an evening.  Craig’s feelings for Raina come through amazingly, you can practically feel what he feels.  This story is heart breaking, painful, beautiful and definitely worth the read. You’ll finish it in no time, it’s that good, I promise.
