Oprah.com loves BLANKETS!
February 13, 2012
With Valentine's Day approaching, the book critics at Oprah.com are naturally feeling romantic... and we're delighted to see Craig Thompson's masterpiece Blankets featured as one of "The 8 Greatest Love Stories of All Time"!
For those new to Blankets, critic Leigh Newman offers a tantalizing summary: "This graphic novel first breaks your heart with the illustrated story of Craig's lonely, isolated childhood... That is, until he meets Raina at a Christian overnight camp. Though both teenagers are struggling with issues far beyond their years (siblings with Down syndrome, divorce), their feelings for each other create a kind of magical bubble that allows them to find out who they are as people—even if, one day, inevitably, that bubble must pop."
