Something New by Lucy Knisley-OPTIONAL

Knisley, Lucy, Something New: Tales from a Maekshift Bride. Pgs. 291. First Second Books, 2016. $22.99. Language: G, Mature Content: PG-13, Violence: G

Lucy is getting married and wants to put her on spin on things. As she spends a year getting her wedding together and putting her own stamp on things, however, she realizes how ridiculous wedding planning can be.  How manipulated brides can be when planning food, dress shopping, picking a cake, decorating, etc. Will Lucy find a happy balance? The illustrations are fun, detailed, and quirky. The author does a great job of portraying the woes of “happily ever after” planning. Due to some content, however, this is best suited for high school or above.
