Hello Fellow Readers, 

Today we have a Graphic novel about a butt being stolen and the friends who try to get it back. First of all, what really caught my attention is the artwork. It's so cute and I think it maybe my favorite artwork in a Graphic novel yet. I am going to look up the artists to see if I can get some artwork because It's really amazing. 

As far as the story goes it was good. I really like Selena and Julie's relationship, but there was a moment in the book where they had a bit of a argument, which doesn't really get resolved. Also, the relationship is so new but they seem to be falling for each other fast. It was really cute though, and I honestly don't think I've ever rooted for a couple as quick as I rooted for them. 

I really loved Chet, they were such a great character and I am so glad they were included in the book. This is the second graphic novel that I've read where they had a non binary character and I am so glad they were included because (once again) I love Chet. Unlike the last novel, Chet was more fleshed out and given more room to grow. 

While the artwork is cutesy, it does deal with some heavy topics , like when your identity of who you are is taken from you, or when you believe your not "normal" and the pressure to fit in. I can't wait to read volume 2.

Overall, a good, fun, and unique read.
