Description

Honestly I didn't know what to expect when reading this story, but it did pleasantly surprise me! We get four short stories of these four best friends, and we see them going about their daily lives in New York. I felt as thought the characters truly were easily to love which made it very easy for me to read. I also thought that the art style was so beautiful! RS: My journey’s not long because I am aware of my looser curl pattern. So growing up in Jamaica, a lot of people saw that as “good hair.” As a child, I wasn’t super clear on it. And then I figured it out a little bit later and I was like, oh. Which made me sad, especially because my mom also has a looser curl pattern, whereas my dad and brother have 4C hair. The book is decidedly a slice of life story, which is a part of what makes it so wonderful. Every single action, interaction between characters, and event, feels real and genuine. Each of the primary characters is featured in their own segment of the book participating in the ritual of self-love that is washing their hair, and the book is closed by a segment that highlights the love they have for each other, and ties the story up in a warm and comforting bow, hazy with kindness, love, and friendship. an excellent, thoughtful, beautifully-drawn graphic novel. these four besties each have their own chapter which takes place on the same day, and then there is a final chapter that brings them all together. the vibes are impeccable, the art and color scheme are vibrant and soothing, and it all feels gorgeously real.

From the storyline to the beautiful illustrations, I was completely hooked. It revolves around four best friends who each have their own story, but all get tied together through bonding, self-care, and their hair care routine. I believe the way friendship, mental health, family, and culture is represented is well-executed. I would love to read more about these characters! I really loved this. I came in blind, not reading too much about the novel. I wanted to be completely surprised, besides rThis was such a nice slice of life graphic novel! The art and different depictions of the four women's hair was beautiful. It covers so many topics in a short space of time, but it does it beautifully.
