Good as Lily by Derek Kirk Kim and Jesse Hamm
This is another Minx graphic novel - a story of a girl who ends up spending some time with her 6 year old, 29 year old and 80 year old self. While the plot is a bit cliche, I did start thinking that it would be nice to put some things about my past self to rest and get a little glimpse of what could be (with some good advice, of course). You get a bit of the cultural identity issues (she's Korean American), a bit of the high school romantic drama, some high school theater and a cranky old grandma. Oh, and a food fight. The pig pinata spiced things up too. If you like other Minx graphic novels, then I'd bet you'll like this one too.
