Lucy Knisley’s love life has been long and twisty, with a long-term relationship that turned into a long distance friendship and then suddenly turned into an engagement. In Something New, Knisley tells the story of her wedding: the good, the bad, and everything in between. Lucy, her then-fiancé, John, and their families spent a year planning this wedding, and the book chronicles all of the most important steps: the venue, the dress, the guest list, the music, the food, and so much more. Anyone who has ever planned a wedding will love to see how Lucy and John navigate the whole process while avoiding unnecessary stereotypes and outdated traditions and putting their own personal touch on the end result. Better yet, the whole thing is told in comic, so readers get to not only hear these stories, stories that feel so honest and believable, but they get to actually see them, in a sense. The artwork is simple and clean, and does a fantastic job depicting everyone and everything. There is so much emotion and heart included that you’ll probably end up tearing up at least once toward the end.
