Local Friendly Ghosts, Grief, and Solitude

Sheets 2-- bookspoilsSheets illustrates the determination of a young girl to fight, even when all parts of her world seem to be conspiring against her. It proves that second chances are possible whether life feels over or life is over. But above all, it is a story of the forgiveness and unlikely friendship that can only transpire inside a haunted laundromat.

This book is also quite a looker; I only wish that the storyline would’ve managed to stir me just as much as the art did. I mean, just take a look at the below:

The color pallets in here make for a visually stunning graphic novel, which means that I have to share my many, many favorites:

Overall, I’d say that though the nonsensical plot felt a bit lacking, in comparison the art style had me wholeheartedly committed to the story. SO MUCH VISUAL INTRICACIES.

Also, fittingly, this song came on loop during my reading:
