Goodreads Synopsis:

Enn is a fifteen-year-old boy who just doesn’t understand girls, while his friend Vic seems to have them all figured out. Both teenagers are in for the shock of their young lives, however, when they crash a local party only to discover that the girls there are far, far more than they appear! 

From the Locus Award-winning short story by Neil Gaiman–one of the most celebrated authors of our time– and adapted in vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations by the Daytripper duo of Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon, this original hardcover graphic novel is absolutely not to be missed!”


I kept seeing this book everywhere, so I wanted to read it. It was an unusual story.

I really liked the way the boys in the story were oblivious to the girls around them. They were just focused on flirting with them, so they didn’t pay attention when they talked about being from another planet. It shows how they can be blinded by girls.

The art in the book was beautiful. It became abstract and colorful when the girls spoke about where they came from, but it was dark when they were in the real world.

The story was a little too strange for me. We didn’t really find out what the story was behind the girls at the party, and I would have loved to know their history.

What to read next:

American Gods, Volume 1: Shadows by Neil Gaiman, P.Craig Russell, Scott Hampton
