I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Marjorie Glatt is running the family laundry business and Wendel is a ghost in search of a purpose. This is their story in finding a place where they belong.
The illustrations in this graphic novel are beautiful. The transition between the perspective of the two characters are creatively done. The human world has vibrant colors while the ghost world has dull monotone colors. The story develops in a slow steady pace where I could take the time to appreciate each panel. There are pages where there is no dialogue, but the story panels actively capture the loneliness that Marjorie feels. I was also able to gain an understanding of the person the illustration revolved around.
This was a heartwarming quick read. When the stars have aligned I’m definitely getting the finished copy.
Read in May
