I liked the idea of this book - the past and future selves of a young woman meeting all at once. It is an interesting idea for a memoir. However, the deeper parts of the book weren't developed too well. I hardly knew who Lily was, then suddenly she was very important. However, I gave it a three because of the cleverness of the story and the fact that I liked the characters. ( )

Reviewed from interlibrary loan copy.

It wasn't quite what I was expecting in a graphic novel about four versions of a person. ( )

I am crazy for Derek Kirk Kim, and even though Good As Lily is not as well-written or drawn as Same Difference, it's better than any of the other Minx books and better than most comix this year. ( )

I'm pretty pleased--even impressed--with the Minx line so far, despite its stupid name. Derek Kirk Kim and Jesse Hamm--what else do I need to say? I enjoyed this quite a bit. A little too generic to be 5-star, but kept me guessing enough for 4. ( )

Kim's writing really shines here. In a few deft and spare scenes, he takes Grace (and her other selves) on a journey through which she is forced to confront and overcome her fears and flaws -- and not always with happy outcomes.

Plotwise, the book is dense, with plenty happening. The reader is involved in events at just the right level — they’re not spelled out simply, but everything’s there if paying attention.
