All Summer Long by Hope Larson (Review)
A middle grade graphic novel, All Summer Long tells the story of a young music-loving girl named Bina. Bina loves her music, loves music in general. As summer starts, Bina finds herself alone without her best friend Austin, when he goes off to summer camp, leaving her behind. As the summer goes by, she plays her music, tries to occupy herself and makes an unexpected friend in Austin's music loving older sister. When Austin comes back, there will be a lot of work to do to repair their friendship, and find a new flow and happy medium.
All Summer Long is a short graphic novel, with nice art and a good set of character designs. The story was a little dull, but would be highly empathizable for young boys and girls around Bina's age. I remember similar experiences from my childhood. Beyond this, there is not much to say since it is quite a short read, and saying anymore would just spoil the whole graphic novel, so I'll just leave that here. All in all, All Summer Long was good and I give it the rating of FOUR OF OUT FIVE STARS!!!
