Beautifully illustrated tale of a genderqueer teen on an all-white Christian camping trip.

Makes you think about the whitewashing of history and the inclusion of others in that history.

Really thought-provoking.

I really enjoyed this one! A book about getting out of your comfort zone, exploring differences and endeavoring on new adventures.

This book is BEAUTIFUL! I cannot think of a single reason not to read it.

A thoughtful book from the perspective of a queer teen of color, and the many micro-aggressions she must endure from the rest of her camp-mates and counselors.

A powerful look at faith, and the damage that microaggressions and lack of inclusion can cause marginalized folks, specifically from "nice white ladies." A great LGBTQ+ book for middle school readers, and the colored pencil art is gorgeous.

Very good slice of life graphic novel. Easy to read and look at; has quite a number of wordless panels. Recommended.

I haven't read a graphic novel in a long time. But I wanted to read this one because of it's subject matter. Two queer girls find a bond in a Christian feminist camp for girls. How poetically ironic is that. The story was simple and uncomplicated and it got to the point. I really enjoyed reading it.

Will there be more? I really enjoyed this. I know it's a webcomic, but I got to the end of the print book and wondered if that was The End, or if there would be a volume two.

Anyway, I really liked the art, and the plot was engaging and realistic, I think. I would definitely recommend this to others.
