🌟 I am making an effort to read more graphic novel and I have seen many of my friends reading and loving this one so I decided to give it a chance! It has a high average rating on GR (~4.5) and I think I know why now!

🌟 Since it is a graphic novel, I am going to talk about both the writing and the artist style! First, the drawings are good, my problem is that one of my first graphic novels was Saga and it is still my favorite up-to-date! The details and drawing in it are amazing and I compare everything to it which I should not be doing.

🌟 The drawing is cool, you get used to it the more you read and I started liking it more and more, I might actually draw something from it soon! There was a chapter done in a fairy-tale style and I wish it was all like that, I fell in love immediately with that chapter!

🌟 The writing is also good, some speech bubbles were small and some of them were confusing but overall it was honest, enjoyable and funny. Guys also swear a lot in it which I like xD.
There was a chapter with not a single word and yet it conveyed the message so well and it was very interesting!!

🌟 The characters were relatable and unique, I like most of them which is a rare thing to happen in a book! There is a slow-burn romance which is kind of cute too and I am here for it!

🌟 The plot is nice too, I just wanted to know more about the hockey games and to see more actions because actually all we have is snapshots of the games and the results, I read Fence which is also an LGBT graphic novel and this part was more well done there!

🌟 Overall, a very cute, very interesting graphic novel that I strongly recommend for pride month!
