Summary

Jimmy is a teenager in a crummy little town. He's got a lousy best friend Simon, a porn habit and an uncle whose miserable existence is the embodiment of life stalled in its tracks. He's also got a tender soul, a pure-hearted crush and the makings of a budding artist. A horrible youtube video of Jimmy dancing in his living room becomes viral, courtesy of Simon, and has made every sweet and hopeful thing about Jimmy seem utterly pathetic. Everyone from fellow classmates to the clerk at the corner store has seen the video, and Jimmy finds himself a celebrity in his town, just for the wrong reason. Unfortunately, the youtube antics do not stop there.As in his in debut graphic novella Nicolas, Pascal Girard's second book again showcases his spare, deceptively simple style and his wonderfully expressive and pitch-perfect dialogue. Girard uses a drawn line full of tentative, exploratory and intuitive emotion, a line as sure of the treasure it carries as the book's quiet hero.
