Corrina Park used to have big plans.

Studying English literature in college, she imagined writing a successful novel and leading the idealized life of an author. But she’s been working at the same advertising agency for the past five years and the only thing she’s written is... copy. Corrina knows there must be more to life, but and she faces the same question as does everyone in her generation: how to find it?

Here is the brilliant debut graphic novel about a young woman’s search for happiness and self-fulfillment in the big city.


My two-bits:

This coming of age story was told in a beautiful way with a pink tinge. The sense of living in the city as a young single woman comes through well.


  1. I haven't heard of this! I usually prefer comics to graphic novels, though. There's just something about waiting on the next issue... :)
