    I am having trouble liking the two main characters here. But I do know that things are going to change in the second volume. It's just who the characters are. The characters are in their stage of life where things in life are rather confusing and I totally get that. Let's stop expecting the young adult characters to behave like mature adults who are making their worse mistakes their lives. With this mind when I read such genres, I tend to understand the characters better. Ben has been facing harr I am having trouble liking the two main characters here.

The characters are in their stage of life where things in life are rather confusing and I totally get that. Let's stop expecting the young adult characters to behave like mature adults who are making their worse mistakes their lives. With this mind when I read such genres, I tend to understand the characters better. Ben has been facing harrassment and homophobic comments on a daily basis ever since he came out. He ignores everything but he just cannot ignore the fact that he's alone and he needs someone in his life to have that special relationship. He develops a hopeless crush on Tim who's giving him mixed signals throughout the entire story ever since they became acquainted with each other. Ben has an amazing best friend and a loving, understanding family, don't get me wrong. We all know how it feels to want to be with someone special. But I was always on the edge while reading this hoping he doesn't get hurt. Like I was actually worried about him. Damn, he became my cinnamon roll that easily 😋 So far the characters are developed well. The second volume seems promising enough! Already into the first 5 chapters of the next volume. Hope things work out for Ben. I didn't like some stereotypes as was being depicted in the story.

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4 stars This book is Jay Bell and Cassy Fallon’s graphic novel adaptation of Something Like Summer, the first book in the Seasons series (and part of the larger Something Like series). I have only read the first of the novels and loved the ever changing trajectories of the main characters. Fans of the novels should understand this graphic novel only covers Ben and Tim’s senior year of high school, whereas the book went quite a bit further (the novel covers around a decade). A Joyfully Jay review. 4 stars This book is Jay Bell and Cassy Fallon’s graphic novel adaptation of Something Like Summer, the first book in the Seasons series (and part of the larger Something Like series).

Fans of the novels should understand this graphic novel only covers Ben and Tim’s senior year of high school, whereas the book went quite a bit further (the novel covers around a decade). As far as the story goes, I think the content has been whittled down enough to work well with a graphic novel format. Of course, most of the action focuses on Tim and Ben’s changing relationship, but there’s also the bullying Ben endures and the support Ben gets from his best friend Allison (TW: she is the target of some domestic violence; readers can see the bruising on her face). Bell strikes a good balance between developing the Ben/Tim story and incorporating the supporting cast throughout the book. Read Camille’s review in its entirety here.

Już dawno główny bohater mnie tak nie irytował swoimi decyzjami i jakimkolwiek brakiem pomyślunku. Nie dość, że koleś dosłownie zawsze wybierał najgorsze możliwości, które nijak nie mogły się skończyć dobrze, to dodatkowo kompletnie nie docierały do niego informacje zwrotne o tym, że to, co robi, nie jest mile widziane. Ponadto był pełen hipokryzji. Nie przeszkadza mu jakoś wielce, że jego "chłopak", chce żeby się ukrywali, ale już nie potrafi zrozumieć Boże, jak dobrze, że to się już skończyło.

Dodatkowo, jako wisienka na torcie, niektóre zachowania głównego bohatera podchodzą pod prześladowanie. Jedyna pozytywna rzecz, jaką można wynieść po przeczytaniu tego komiksu to to, jak nie pisać historii miłosnych.

    Been slightly pacing myself while reading this, a few pages at a time. I like that the setting was changed from the 90s to now, adds a new twist. Looking forward to the next volume

    Nice starting off point Condensed version of Jay Bell's first Something Like book told in graphic novel form. Well done with nice illustrations. I'm now curious to check out more of the series.

    Fans of the "Something Like..." series will love this very visual representation of Jay Bell's classic coming of age gay drama in the modern Western world will love this graphic novel, perhaps even more than the movie version. While being fundamentally set in the US, with very contextual views of school and holidays; these characters could be in any anglic nation like the UK or Australia. The graphic artwork by Cassy Fallon was brilliant, if a tad romanticised; but this was ultimately a love dram Fans of the "Something Like..." series will love this very visual representation of Jay Bell's classic coming of age gay drama in the modern Western world will love this graphic novel, perhaps even more than the movie version.

The graphic artwork by Cassy Fallon was brilliant, if a tad romanticised; but this was ultimately a love drama, and romanticism suited it. I am very glad that this kick-Starter project succeeded and look forward to the second book.
