As to the story, it features Merle, also known as Blink, as she meets some new characters and converses with them about things including life, being homeless, and Blink’s friends Sam and Hank. Long-time Blink readers may be a little disappointed to not see Sam and Hank during the story, but they are present in the plot even though they are not physically present. I don’t know what else to say about the story, because I think you really have to read it yourself to understand it. But I will give away my favorite line. It’s a description of Blink and Sam’s relationship as “A joy to behold”.
Max’s art is great. The backgrounds, based on real locations in Columbus, are meticulously rendered and really bring you into the story. The characters’ expressions are right on, and the storytelling is great. You can tell Max really loves this work and puts a lot of effort into its’ creation. I’d even say the book is “A joy to behold”!
