I’m OK with I’m Not OK with This

IAmNotOkay_Cover_forsman.pngI heard about the new Netflix series The End of the F***ing World based on the graphic novel by Charles Forsman.  Thought I’d read the book first.  You know. When I went to look for it, found this instead.  Okay is almost about high schoolers, focusing on Sydney, who has lsot her father, has trouble getting along with her family, despite the fact that she would like to, and  has few friends at school.  On top of that, when she is angry, she has a power that destroys.  You’ll have to read it to find out more. The drawings are cartoonish–just enough lines to tell the story and generate a feeling. The story is emotional and engaging. The ending is earned, but unwanted, as Forsman has made the connection between Sydney and the reader.
