Sheets, Brenna Thummler (2018)

Marjorie has to look after her family and their beloved laundrette after her mother dies. Faced with school problems, constant pressure from a businessman eager to buy her laundrette, and her depressed father, Marjorie doesn’t know how long she can cope like this. Until she meets Wendell, a recently-deceased young boy who’s still longing for life, and causes a whirlwind of events for Marjorie. Will they succeed?

Heart-wrenching and full of nostalgic beauty, Sheets makes you ​feel so much. Illustrated with soft colours and fluffiness, this is one of the best graphic novels I’ve ever read.

Perfect for all ages.
