okay, now THIS is where it’s at!

i was pretty disappointed with volume 3all dumb scattered subplots with significantly less humor and charm than i’d come to expect. but this one is completely back on track. laffs! realistic situations! no weird crime families! (which was in the second volume, but whatever) i am able to love these characters again without reservation!

their dorkiness:

their loyalty:

the sweet dumb oblivion of youth

their expressive outrage

their esther’s amplified woe

and all the missteps characterizing the treacherous entrée into adulthood

including the specific perils of romance.

and the battle between ideology and emotionto be powerful and feminist

but also susceptible to a breaking heart

although esther’s still here to represent the straight-up boy crazy

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
