Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The critically lauded debut graphic novel from Bryan Lee O'Malley returns to print with a brand new cover!

Raleigh doesn't have a soul. A cat stole it — or at least that's what she tells people — or at least that's what she would tell people if she told people anything. But that would mean talking to people, and the mere thought of social interaction is terrifying. How did such a shy teenage girl end up in a car with three of her hooligan classmates on a cross-country road trip? Being forced to interact with kids her own age is a new and alarming proposition for Raleigh, but maybe it's just what she needs — or maybe it can help her find what she needs — or maybe it can help her to realize that what she needs has been with her all along.

Review:

"Lost at Sea quietly defies easy categorization, in the best possible way..." Greg McElhatton, iComics.com

Review:

"[The] initial stream-of-consciousness approach slowly evolves into a poignant, emotional but quiet climax that serves as a worthy payoff." Don MacPherson, TheFourthRail.com

Review:

"O'Malley's drawings are simply yummy, and his book captures the clumsiness, isolation, and aimlessness of adolescence." Craig Thompson, author of Blankets and Carnet de Voyage

Review:

"[A]n amazingly dense and deep book, with much revealed upon further examination..." Johanna Draper Carlson, ComicsWorthReading.com

Graphic novels are often synonymous with superheroes, but if you look you can find small stories that are touching and sweet. "Lost at Sea" is one of those little gems, a coming of age story of a girl who goes out of her comfort zone and finds herself learning more then she ever thought she would about the people around her- and herself. I found "Lost at Sea" very well written, the drawings to be very sweet, and the tone lovely. While it is definitely YA, it's worth your time.
