I am so incredibly glad that I picked this up! I read a few graphic novels in elementary school but none of them were as quality as this one, so I'm going to say this is my first graphic novel! And I loved it.
The artwork/drawings (I'm not sure the correct terminology yet) were phenomenal, they were very detailed and it was very easy to detect expressions from the characters (without looking at the words).
THE STORY WAS SO CUTE THOUGH. Ah I loved it so much. I loved the secrecy at first that he was her client but he didn't want to reveal himself to her because he was afraid. Then as the story went on he became more and more comfortable in his own skin. Frances & Sebastian's friendship was precious, I couldn't tell if they were really more than friends... like they kissed but I'm not really sure what that means. It doesn't really make a difference to me because I just loved their dynamic. Also the ending where the King joins in the fashion show type thing was truly incredible and I honestly wasn't expecting it. I was expecting more just a support from the audience type of vibe but no, it was all out "I am doing this with you because you're my son and I love you."
This was just overall so adorable of a story. It was a perfect first graphic novel for me and a great Pride Month read ️
