Odessa (1)

We rated this book:


This graphic novel has a good story. A family lives somewhere north of San Francisco after the ‘end of the world.’ The world didn’t really end, there was a huge earthquake and everything got broken. That might seem pretty far-fetched, but after the year of COVID with no school and empty stores, the end of the world doesn’t seem impossible.

Virginia gets a package in the mail from her mother, who left eight years ago. When she asks her dad about why Mom left, he won’t talk to her. Virginia gets mad and sets out on the journey to San Francisco. It’s not like a journey on a plane or on a highway – everything is broken. It’s wilderness, and there are thugs who rob and kill people on the way. But what’s worse, is that Virginia’s little brothers sneak after her! She has to take care of them, but they are still a family, after all.

At the end of the book are examples of how the artist’s drawings evolved. I thought that was really cool because drawing comics interests me too. It’s a good story, and I think anybody can relate to it, although some of it is scary. It’s about the end of the world, after all!
