This One Summer [excerpt]

An excerpt from Jillian and Mariko Tamaki's brilliant graphic novel.

Yesterday, I posted a review of Jillian and Mariko Tamaki's wonderful new young adult graphic novel This One Summer. Today, I'm proud to present an exclusive excerpt from the book, courtesy of the good people at First Second Books. This excerpt really gives a feeling for the rhythm and tone of the story, and showcases Jillian Tamaki's wonderful art.
