This is one of my favorite comics ever. It's about a young girl growing up, but it's neither kidsy nor overly "adult". It's got silly games and serious dilemmas and country recipes and folktales and mystery and scholarship and feminism and butterchurn accidents. I love this book and go back to it over and over. ( )

This is a very sweet story told from the POV of Amy, a child who lives as a peasant in Goredd. I loved the little glimmers of Seraphina's world that I saw long before the book was ever written.

As a stand alone story, Amy Unbounded works. It's a coming of age story where Amy discovers that the world isn't always fair, but in the end still moves forward. I really enjoyed this and hope that Hartman revisits Amy at some later date. ( )

The series was recommended by a usually reliable source. BUT, I read the introduction, where Hartman obviously does not value Fritz Bhaer, Jo March's choice of lifemate in Good Wives. She calls him a "stodgy old dope." With that kind of prejudice, she has nothing I can value.

I also have and very much enjoyed "amy unbounded, the ashcan series". #1,2,3,4 and 5. ( )

Instead of the simplified roles of friends or lovers, Hartman presents more mature and varied combinations of the relationships between men and women. The characters are incredibly real, and overall, this is a wonderful meditation on beginnings, endings, and life in relation to stories.
