(Short) Review: Read the book before reading this graphic novel!! 


I really enjoyed this. The artwork is very beautiful and I love seeing June and Day brought to life. However, I was really disappointed in this because it was so short. It was really fast-paced and it took out a lot of other events from the book. It wasn't the best book adaptation, but it was still quite enjoyable. I hope they make the other two book, because it was such a good trilogy and I want to see more of June and Day.

My Rating: 4/5
