First things first: I bought this book for the hype. I knew nothing about it, other than it had a pretty cover, was a graphic novel, and everyone was pumped about it. So I bought it. That being said, I assumed (you know what they say about that) that it was about a straight couple but ITS NOT! This is a gay book and it’s an incredible one. Let’s dive in.
I’ve been following Kevin Panetta and Paulina Ganucheau around the Internet for a couple years now, so when I learn that Panetta (along with Ganucheau’s sister) was working on a graphic novel, the hype was real. Bloom finally came out, and I’m so glad to have read it!
I grabbed this graphic novel from my local library just ‘cuz the other day, and I’m so glad I did. First Second has easily become a publishing favorite; they release such incredible titles for all ages. The Time Museum is a middle grade graphic novel, clocking in at about 250 pages. But let’s get into the plot!
I wish I had ordered and read this as soon as I finished book 5 because wow this book has more twists than I anticipated. On the other hand, I’m so glad that I took my time getting to it because I sped through this last night, and I think that this may be the final installment. I’m going to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, but obviously there will be spoilers everywhere. So strap in, Fangirls, it’s a bumpy ride.
Up until last week, I thought this was the final book in the Last Man series, but it’s not! I’ve yet to order the next one, so there is a possibility that I won’t have it for next week, so I may take a break from this series for a bit. But believe me, I don’t want to; these books are incredible cliffhangers! But let’s get to the book.
In installment 4 of the Last Man Series, a lot happens. We open with Marianne and Adrian talking to a woman who works at a business making pop stars, and it escalates from there.
We had a little break last week, but we’re back with the third book of the Last Man series and oh boy is it a doozy! When we left off, Adrian and his mother had realized that Richard had left them, and the mother (Marianne) decided that they were going to find him, because he took the tournament winnings.
