This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki

Every summer Rose comes to the same house at a beach with her family. She has always loved being there but this year things have changed, her parents are always fighting and her relatonship with her best friend Windy is strained.

A lovely graphic novel. The art is great with an amount of detail that rewards looking closer. This is more character-driven than plot-driven, but I loved the atmosphere so that didn't bother me. Themes touched upon are growing up, sexuality and relationships of all kinds.
