Bloom Book Review

Goodreads Summary: Now that high school is over, Ari is dying to move to the big city with his ultra-hip band—if he can just persuade his dad to let him quit his job at their struggling family bakery. Though he loved working there as a kid, Ari cannot fathom a life wasting away over rising dough and hot ovens. But while interviewing candidates for his replacement, Ari meets Hector, an easygoing guy who loves baking as much as Ari wants to escape it. As they become closer over batches of bread, love is ready to bloom . . . that is, if Ari doesn’t ruin everything.

Thoughts: I hardly read graphic novels not because I dont like them but because I dont know of any. I found this one at the library and since I had seen it on Instagram I decided to pick it up.

The art style is really cute and I like how easy the story it is to follow. It’s easy to follow the tragetictery of the main characters and their development. I like how their friendship develops along with Ari’s character development.

I also enjoy the ways in which the bakery plays a role in this story and the importance that is placed on family. This is a cute coming of age graphic novel in which the main character figures out things about himself.

I wasnt a big fan of the ending of this book though. Things felt quick and unresolved so I wanted a little more from it.

I recommend this to those of you who enjoy graphic novels or those looking for a cute LGBTQ story to read. You can get this book at Barnes and Noble or look for it at your local library.
