Elle is just another teenage girl… most of the time. Bubbly and good-natured, she wastes no time making friends on her first day at her new school. But Elle has a secret: she hasn’t come alone. She’s brought with her a colorful mix of personalities, which come out when she least expects it… Who is Elle, really? And will her new friends stand by her when they find out the truth?
The graphic novel is about our main character Elle, her life and about herself. She got transferred to a new school and is a new kid there and many of the students find her quite different and cool. She befriends a group of friends and they instantly click irrespective of how different each one are among themselves. The initial days go by happy making lots of memories with her friends, but as days go by an incident occurs + lots of school pressure on her, Elle starts to change. The change is very drastic and dramatic for her and even for others around her. She suffers from Dissociative identity disorder or Multiple personality disorder which we come to know as the story progresses. Just when we start to get deeper into the story, it ends at a cliffhanger.
Storywise I am definitely in love with it and hooked. I would want to know what happens in the next volumes. It is engaging and Elle’s character is portrayed well. I like that she has supportive friends who understand that she is changing and suffering and don’t give up on her. Artwork is amazing. The colours and the illustrations are cute. Surely recommend the graphic novel as it is a quick read and showcases a story wonderfully.
Thank you Netgalley and Le Lombard / Europe Comics for the arc in exchange for an honest review.
