For as far as she can remember, Rose and her family have been going to their family cottage in Awago Beach. Her days there are filled with summery activities with her cottage friend Windy. At the same time, the teenagers that hang around the convenience store seem to be getting in their own kind of trouble. Will the cottage ever be peaceful again? It makes you feel detached and involved at the same time. I could imagine Rose thinking back to that one summer and feeling the same way we do as we read the novel. The artwork in this book is stunning.
From a recent column. I mention this because in This One Summer Jillian Tamaki seems to go out of her way not to use that shortcut. The result of a collaboration between Tamaki art and her cousin Mariko Tamaki words , this graphic novel is the story of two girls on the cusp of teenagehood and one summer holiday. This does not at all mean the same thing as emotionally distant, as we learn, but it does easily fit the content of the book. Rose has spent every summer since she was five with her family at the cottage on Awago Beach, spending most of her time with Windy, who lives nearby.
