Three new university students quickly become friends as they struggle through innumerable troubles to reinvent themselves. Good for the college bound, college survivors, and fans of awkward adult "coming of age" tales.

For newly graduated high schoolers, post-secondary education can certainly feel like "giant" days. This series is perfect for those experiencing this. Allison's characters have just started attending university. The dramatic Esther, the sardonic Susan, and the adorable Daisy have become friends. Together, they support and help each other out as they each face their own gamut of experiences, including: dealing with boys who have wronged them, creating a paper that does viral, facing one's grandparent when wasted, crushing on a girl, and many more joys and woes of the academic and social life of a university student. Giant Days is terribly funny, partly because of how smartly written it is, and partly because of artistic direction. Characters boldly proclaim their thoughts and emotions on page through their almost comically exaggerated postures and expressions. Despite the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, this style, along with the bright, varied palette, always keeps the story's tone on the lighter, fun side of things, rather than the tenser, dramatic one you might expect. Giant Days is a fast and funny read, great for all the time-restricted, stressed students out there.

Finally! A book about university student. About the challenges of finding friendship, maintaining them, the effects of social media, and the steady nature of female friendships. This is great! I enjoyed this thoroughly and can't wait to continue the series.

Three girls just started university somewhere in England. Daisy is home schooled and a bit sheltered, Esther has a dramatic wave that just follows her wherever she goes, and Susan was the sane one until a guy from her past decides to transfer.

The girls have been friends for three weeks when we meet them but everything is just beginning. Post secondary education, and living away from home while attending it, is a period of great growth and exploration and I'm definitely looking forward to reliving a lot of it with these three. The campus flu and someone's milestone birthday were highlights for me.

This one is worth checking out even if you don't normally like the graphic novel format. It's a charming and honest picture of young adulthood, college life, and the unlikely but lasting friendships that form with the people you happen to be thrown together with by dorm assignments and class schedules.

I ADORE this series! The characters are charming, hilarious, and incredibly relatable. I found myself saying, "that is so me!" several times while reading. If I didn't know any better, I would say that this series was written about me and my group of female friends as we navigated our first years of college, catching colds and feelings towards boys with ironic facial hair and learning about feminism. I highly recommend, especially for fans of Lumberjanes!
