Good As Lily

I finished Good as Lily, the graphic novel by Derek Kirk Kim and Jesse Hamm ages ago and completely forgot to blog about it. (Unlike the other books I finished in March and then just never really got around to blogging about, I'm doing that soon.) The fact that I forgot about it probably has something to do with having read it about 30 minutes before it was due back at the library.

On Grace Kwon's 18th birthday she suddenly finds herself face to face with her selves of past, future and really future. Very Ebeneezer Scrooge only instead of being ghosts her selves are very real and other people can interact with them as well. Grace has to hide them from her parents, try to understand each of them and figure out how the heck to get rid of them.

I have to say that I don't like the title. I totally get why they called it that. I do. I still don't like it. I feel like Grace needing to feel that she was "good as Lily" was only part of the whole puzzle that Grace has to figure out. I think (maybe?) they wanted it to be the central issue, but it didn't come across that way for me.

Title quibbles aside, I liked it.
