September Books 14) Lost At Sea, by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Published (and presumably writtem) before O’Malley’s success with Scott Pilgrim, this is pretty good in its own right; a fairly short graphic novel about a teenager on an accidental road trip from California to Vancouver with three schoolmates who she barely knows, and her inner conviction that her soul has been sold by her mother and currently resides in a cat. O’Malley’s very simple drawing style is surprisingly effective at drawing out emotional depth and also illustraing the freewayscape of the Pacific coast.
