Review: Sheets by Brenna Thummler

I got a digital copy of Sheets by Brenna Thummler from NetGalley without knowing Sheets Covermuch about it.  I had seen the cover and heard little snippets, but I didn’t know what the themes or story really were.  Overall I felt this graphic novel was good, but could have benefited from refining.

Sheets follows a ghost named Wendell and a girl named Marjorie. Both are dealing with their own respective issues that in some ways draw them together.  They both struggle with being accepted by their peers and are often faced by misunderstandings.

There were aspects of the story that I felt could have been fleshed out more.  You would get a little tidbit but not the whole story, which I know can be hard in this type of format. Also, the pacing did seem to fluctuate quite a bit, which could make it a little more difficult to read at time.

The art was a unique style that had a number of bright pops and great moments.  I would definitely read more by this author based on the art alone. There were some wonderful moments of whimsy in the art that I really enjoyed.

If you want to pick up your own copy of Sheets, it comes out today, August 28th. You can find out more on Goodreads, or order your own on Amazon.

Happy reading!
