By John Allison, Lissa Treiman and Whitney Cogar
Giant Days! This is the story of the first year of college as experienced by cynical narrator, Susan, and her two unlikely friends (and roomies) dramatic Esther and naive Daisy. Talk of mystery fungus, Polish “flu” pills, medicinal wine, and how to take revenge on the Bantserve boys kept me riveted and laughing. The complexity of the characters was so well done– in illustration and text–it felt like it was ripped from the pages of real life, and the characterization doesn’t end with the three girls. Nerdy Ed and Susan’s “rival,” McGraw (who reads as an old soul and a good guy), are intriguing secondary characters.
