Anyone who's been in my vicinity in the past year has heard me sing the praises of Tillie Walden's "On a Sunbeam". So when I saw this on the shelf - a Tillie Walden comic from 2017? That I hadn't read yet?! I knew I would love it, but once again, I was shocked by just how much it hit home for me. "I Love This Part" is a short story in comic form about the relationship between two girls - the simple and complex story of first love. The art, of course, is gorgeous but what really hits me about the art in this story is the way Tillie uses color and perspective to express the all-encompassing feeling of falling in love for the first time.
Highly recommended to teens and adults alike.
