    This story is so 90 s From the Henry Rollins character to the Nine Inch Nails lyrics to the curtain hairstyles to the annoying Kevin Smithesque movie references to the nerd fantasies, everything about this book screams of a certain time and place Whining was big back then, and there is plenty of whining in this book, plenty of kids bitching about being where they don t want to be, about love and etcetera The art begins poorly, making it hard to decipher one character from the other, but as This story is so 90 s From the Henry Rollins character to the Nine Inch Nails lyr...

    Let s say 3.5 stars.Listen, I have a powerful nostalgia for the 90s and I am drawn to stories that are set there for sure.But this may actually be too 90s for me to love It is 90s in every way, both positive and negative It is immature in a way that it just can t quite escape and a lot of the things that it tries to tackle racism in a small town, homophobia in a small 90s town it just isn t up to Not that it is particularly bad but it comes across pretty hamfisted at times Another issue Let s say 3.5 stars.Listen, I have a powerful nostalgia for the 90s and I am drawn to stories that are set there for sure.But this may actually be too 90s for me to love It is 90s in every way, both positive and negative It is immature in a way that it just can t quit...

    I really enjoyed the slice of life this book painted teenagers and young adult dreamers who are stuck living in the small town of Northern Plains It s UBER 90s in setting and tone, and despite having central female characters, this book doesn t pass the bechdel test But the thing that really rang true to me, that made me keep turning the pages without pausing, was the utter size and dimension to each char...

    I enjoyed this anthology quite a bit Though the summary only mentions Jeffery, the series is about a group of teens, their interactions and the chaos that comes while trying to figure out what to do with their lives In the beginning it was confusing at a few times, but it improved after getting to know the characters better The series definitively takes place in the 90s, which added a nostalgia aspect to the story overall At times, the characters can seem slightly stereotypic...

    I really wasn t sure what to expect when I picked this up There s nothing surreal or fantastical about it it s a pretty straightforward slice of life coming of age drama That said, though, the characters are all three dimensional, never reduced to simple caricatures, and the book follows them as they grow up in a small town McKeever captures the way that small town lives intersect with a finesse that I ve rarely seen anywhere no interaction is contrived simply for the sake of advancing I really wasn t sure what to expect when I picked this up There s nothing surreal or fantastical about it it s a pretty straightforward slice of life coming of age drama That said, though, the characters are all three dimensional, never reduced to simple caricatures, and the book follows them as t...

    This one was a chore A big chore Maybe I just read it at the wrong time in my life Maybe I just couldn t shake the unwavering sense of borderline pedophilia with some of the characters Maybe it was just far too male driven and sexist I think, most of all, I just really didn t care about the characters, no matter how awful things get I did have to laugh out loud when a character gets into a serious car accident, then walks away completely fine and with no repercussions, like it s totally a This one was a chore A big chore Maybe I just read it at the wrong time in my life Maybe I just couldn t shake the unwavering sense of borderline pedophilia with some of the characters Maybe it was just far too...

    I liked it As a person who really enjoys the comic medium and slice of life stories, I was sure I d be a sucker for The Waiting Place It had some moments but I would probably point someone to Box Office Poison, Tricked or The Essex County Trilogy over this book I m still glad I read it, but to get ...

    Took me awhile to finish this.not gonna lie I read it because the back of the book said X men without out power It isn t that.But it is kind of like watching Daria with less comedy A man s sope opera if you will.The race comments are hollow but the book is a fun, and depressing read.

  10. Ernest says:

    About a group of teens growing up in a small suburban town Starts off rather confusingly, but gets better when you know the characters A tale about relationships, longing, heartbreaks, friendship, sprinkled with doses of pop culture references from the 90s.
