    I purchased this book pre-release at the Toronto Comic Art Festival and enjoyed it immensely. The art and storytelling are evocative and sincere. I highly recommended that everyone get a copy when it becomes widely available.

    I got to buy a copy of this fantastic book at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this year, and it's probably one of my most favorite purchases from the event. It's evocative and sincere, and I'm interested in reading more of Jongh's works.

    The best book I read of Aimée de Jongh up to now. Very strong storytelling, and beautiful artwork that really evoke the different locales in the story. Can't wait what she comes up with next!

    Leest als een short movie. Aimee weet de sfeer zo prachtig uit te beelden en uit te drukken, alsof je samen met haar op de achterbank zit. Beetje abrupt einde en ietwat zwakke epiloog.

    Excellent (but should have skipped the trite epilogue).

    Wat een prachtig boek zeg! In 1 adem uitgelezen maar je blijft echt nog lang nadenken over het verhaal, zoveel lagen zitten er in.
