Review:

"The Minx line of girl-themed graphic novels ends with its best book. In 1987 Miami, 15-year-old Shira dreams of old-fashioned adult glamour. Her reality is a lawyer father distracted by a new relationship with his secretary, an outspoken Jewish grandmother and mean girl classmates. Shira's painfully aware of how uncool she is. Her best friend is her grandmother's contemporary, Minerva, a former actress who talks about the old days. While the story is alternately touching and thought provoking, Jones's art is simply astounding. Her characters' expressions and attitudes are perfect in every panel to convey the emotion underlying the text. People are attractive — you want to keep your eyes on them — without being glossy or artificial. The story, while following the 'life-changing turning point' focus of the Minx line, is more subtle and mature than many others. Shira's learning to make her own choices and let go of her father to have his own life, and she comes out the stronger for it." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

It's 1987 and 15-year-old Shira Spektor lives with her father in a funky apartment building on Miami's South Beach. Shira has been totally devoted to her father since her mother died 12 years ago. But when her dad falls in love, Shira suddenly feels left out. Young adult.
