Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
This is a lovely graphic novel memoir about a young woman’s growing up with food. Knisley’s artwork is lovely and vibrant and I myself wondered if her illustrated recipes were a bit of an homage to the originalMoosewood Cookbook. It also has a great sense of adolescence and early adulthood, which I think will make it a natural recommendation for teen and New Adult readers. I did feel that the themes were sometimes a bit less than subtle, but overall this is one to treasure and even relish. (Ba dum dum.)
