Synopsis from Goodreads:
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgement.
I have no idea what possessed me to pick up this graphic novel at the library. Curiosity maybe? I can't say for sure, but I do know that I should have skipped this altogether and never confirmed just how bad it was. Darn that curiosity!
Hmmm. I don't like being too mean in my reviews, so I'll just say I think there's a reason they stopped after publishing only ONE graphic novel.
The characters don't look anything like I thought they would. Or anything like their book descriptions. Okay, fine, artistic freedom. Whatever. But to me, Patch looks like an ordinary teenage boy. There's nothing spectacular about him. And that hat he wore drove me nuts. Nora is dressed like a skank the entire novel and lets it all hang out!
This graphic novel only covers the very first part of the book, so there's nothing really new or different going on. There's an attempt at a bit of new story added at the end, but it wasn't anything special.
There's really no reason for me to recommend buying this graphic novel. So do like I did and borrow it from the library if your curiosity gets the better of you.
