    I'll be thinking about " and returning to " this book for a long time to come, of that I have no doubt, and while there are no esoteric mysteries to unpack or hidden meanings to be deciphered interspersed throughout its pages, there is a cathartic expunging of very personal pain and confusion that plays out over the course of events here that results in something dangerously close to feeling like a tenuous sense of peace has been achieved " hell, earned " by all parties involved by the time all is said and done.

    Overall, an excellent book where the artist is not scared to be vulnerable, which is this tome was nothing but exquisite. The stories by Bell are relatable, sometimes hard to watch but ultimately leaves you rooting for her. The art by Bell feels very warm and intriguing. Altogether, a book that should be on everyones lap. Read Full Review
