A graphic novel of single parenting and heavy metal
When someone looks back and writes a history of this summer, two people they will almost certainly leave out are Sue and Daniel Bagnold . . .
So begins Joff Winterhart's sublimely funny and perceptive graphic novel. Sue, 52, works in a library. Daniel, 15, is still at school. This was the summer vacation Daniel was due to spend with his father and his father's pregnant new wife in Florida. When they cancel his trip, Sue and Daniel face six long weeks together. Joff Winterhart perfectly captures the ennui, the tension, the pathos, and yes, the affection of this mother-son relationship. He shows himself to be a comics author of extraordinary talent.

"Extremely original, funny, touching and beautifully observed in both the drawing and the writing. There is probably no truer portrait of teenage and parental angst." —Posy Simmonds, author, Gemma Bovery
"My graphic novel of the year . . . I love this book so much, I would have to instantly excommunicate any friend who didn’t feel the same way—though such is its greatness, this won’t ever happen." —Observer
