Telgemeier's illustrations breath fresh life into Martin's beloved series, and I greatly appreciate that it was not modernized. ( )
3.5 Stars. This did a solid job establishing each girl in the club with their distinct personalities and personal dramas while keeping the focus mainly on Kristy and her adjustment to the guy in her mom’s life.
The emotions maybe could have had a bit more nuance and situations resolved a little more easily than they would in life, but it’s a quick enjoyable read, the illustrations have a nice bright bold feel, and it’s good to see fiction portray potential step-family in a positive light instead of awful, Watson and his kids are such likable characters.
I find the choice to update this as a graphic novel but not actually UpDate it very odd.
This was such a fun read and gave me all the nostalgic feels!
The real appeal of the book for me, though, was Telgemeier’s stunning art. Her characters are drawn as expressive and lively, as though they’re capable of stepping off the page.
