Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird.

This graphic novel was awesome! I saw some people rave about it, and now I can see why!
Esther, Susan, and Daisy are so different. They each have to teach the others how to be a little more like them. Esther is serious and usually a downer. Susan is outgoing, a little goth, and says what she thinks. Daisy is quiet but ready to try new things. This combination made for some great stories!
Each of the girls had dilemmas at school, which are pretty typical to the university experience, when teens are living away from home for the first time. Susan caught the flu and had to deal with being sick by herself. Esther went a little too far when she bashed an old friend under the guise of feminism. Daisy partied too hard on the night of her eighteenth birthday. They had to deal with love and loss in just four short comics.
These stories are realistic, and great for readers in university or recently graduated. I can’t wait to read more.
