    1 thought on “Will & Whit”

    1. Having absolutely adored Page by Paige by Laure Lee Gulledge, I was excited to pick this up but unfortunately I was somewhat disappointed. It was a cute, quick read, with a sweet message but overall, it wasn't anything all too special for me.

    2. Laura Lee Gulledge quotes Doctor Who and references Firefly in this book. I could almost stop there, since that's how the author fully won me over. But the truth is that she didn't need the references. I like this book, and especially the characters, well enough without.This is the sort of quiet book where not much happens. At least, there aren't many big events. It's just about the characters, and how they change over the course of the book. We see the most change in the main character, Will (s [...]

    3. 3.5 Stars“You know, in the dark, people see what they want to see.”Will & Whit by Laura Lee Gulledge is a very sweet read. A graphic novel filled with darkness, grief, light, and healing. The black and white illustrations and pages with deep, deep black borders somehow still radiate warmth and light. A story that shows how the light can cut through the darkness and pain with a little help and love from friends and family.Wilhelmina“Will” is a warm, creative “old-soul” trying to k [...]

    4. I read this one right after Friends with Boys (catchin' up on my realistic GNs) and I felt like this one was also not quite the book its cover & title wanted me to think it was? I again assumed it was a teen romance. (Maybe I just assume everything is a teen romance?) But it's much more of a story about one girl facing her fears and grief through the power of art and friendship. It was also remarkably funny, with a lot of currently-timely pop culture references that I enjoyed, and that I thi [...]

    5. Graphic novels are so not my thing. This, however, had a very quirky character. Liked that she was afraid of the dark and chose to makes lamps. Had many kooky friends, things jumped from on the thing to another. Too much was jammed in but it was easy to read, not one of those graphics were the bubble words are all over the pages and so much is put on a page that it makes one dizzy to look at. No, I still do not love graphics but I didn't hate this one. That is the best I can do.

    6. Hundreds more reviews like this one at Mrs. ReaderPantsVIEW: I am kind of surprised at the relatively low (3.71) rating on this title. Many reviewers said that not enough happens in the book, and I will agree that it is more of a "slice of life" than an action-packed adventure. This is such a beautiful book with the underlying theme of friendship and dealing with grief. I loved this book; it's a must for any middle and high school library.This is the second graphic novel by Laura Lee Gulledge t [...]

    7. Will and Whit is a pretty cool graphic novel. It is surprisingly emotional and raw - mostly at the end. I picked this up because I needed something enjoyable to read after The Last Star, and this did the trick. It was a quick read - only took me an hour or so to read it. It was cute, I just didn't like some of the art work, and a few of the characters were acting a bit annoying in parts. I really liked Will as a protagonist; she was just a really real and cool person to read about.Better than Pe [...]

    8. This is a great example of how people in real life DO NOT talk. The dialogue in this graphic novel is stilted and contextualized. No teenager says "Great Scott" ever. It has a cute message but it's banged over your head by page one.

    9. (Intermediate) Will and Whit1. I did enjoy this book as the main character is overcoming a difficult event in her life. However, I would not add this book to my personal library. This book deals with loosing a family member and I feel that this is a topic that needs to be approached cautiously with primary children-all children for that matter. This book is also intermediate for my preschoolers. I would recommend this book to my media specialist to add to her collection for 5-6th grade students. [...]

    10. Seventeen-year-old Wilhelmina "Will" Huckstep isn't your typical teenager. She has an old-fashioned soul and loves making old things into new ones, especially lamps, which helps keep the darkness at bay. Will is afraid of the dark and the shadows that haunt there. When Hurricane Whitney (Whit) causes widespread power outages, Will must learn to overcome her fears.I really wanted to like this story and for the most part I did. I really like Will's character as well as her Aunt Ella. I also really [...]

    11. As a huge fan of Page by Paige, I was super excited to see that Laura Lee Gulledge was putting out a second graphic novel! I was a little sad to see that her second book had less of a visually metaphoric style (since that was one of the things I LOVED about her first work), and a little sad to see that it's not in color (color is actually kind of important in this book, as it was in Page by Paige), BUToverall, I was not disappointed. The story in Will & Whit is much more memorable than it wa [...]

    12. Wow I understand where the author is coming from so much more now after reading Page by Paige. I read this one first and really struggled with its attempts at introspection. Firstly I really liked the illustrations - all of the 'shadows' were brilliant. I also really enjoyed Will as a character, she had her own thing going on, interests, hobbies, friends, etc. However, I just didn't gel with her problems or the other characters. I love books with multiple friendship dynamics, when a character ha [...]

    13. Wil and Whit Book Review This was a really bizarre graphic novel and my first young adult one. Have to say I'm not a fan. It was a super fast read but felt a little all over the place. One minute its about a carnival the next about a ginormous storm.  Will feels like her life is out of control. She's hiding everything that happened from her best friends Autumn and Noel. Following a family tragedy Will tries to plan a fun summer and connect with her friends.  I actually think this would have [...]

    14. Language: Damned & badass on first two pages and more peppered throughout book (bastard, douche, etc.) Doesn't detract and actually works as characters are seniors in HS, but beware before handing book over to younger audience.Another effort from Laura Lee G that I found better than her Page by Page, has more of a storyline (main character Will is afraid of the dark), arc and quirky touches: Will likes older/antique things in a modern age, introduces people with 3 things you should know abou [...]

    15. Gulledge is definitely honing her craft. I really liked how she integrated visual metaphor into Page by Paige, and here it's even more seamlessly integrated into the story. It feels more like a manga convention than a gimmick (masterful though PbyP was). Still have one major complaint, though. Amulet SERIOUSLY needs to start publishing Gulledge in color. Gulledge's work (all two books) seems to always have an Art theme, but more than that, color is often mentioned/a plot point in her stories. Gr [...]

    16. Well, I knew I was going to read this one, since I loved her previous (Page by Paige) - and also I knew this one had some local scenery in it. And boy did it! Every couple of pages I saw a familiar scene - look, there's Lee Park, and the library, and the free speech wall! And Chaps and she mentions Clark Elementary! (One local quibble: a girl who grew up here would KNOW the Ix Building.) So, like a rock band mentioning the name of the town they're playing that night, she automatically gets the h [...]

    17. I loved this black and white graphic novel about Wilhelmina, who is called Will for short, loves art and puns, but is afraid of the dark since both her parents died in an accident the year before. Whit is short for Whitney, the storm that blows through town and changes the lives of several teens who learn about themselves as they creatively face the challenges and inconveniences of living life "unplugged," during the power outage. Will and Gulledge tell you "three things" about several of the ch [...]

    18. A very sweet story about a very interesting girl - Wilhelmina, Will for short. She's a teen with an old soul who likes old things. Lucky for her, she lives with her aunt who owns an antique store. Will can feed her old soul with old things every day. She can also find material for her art, which is creating lamps (although she'd be the last person to call herself an artist). Sadly for Will, she lives with her aunt because her parents died a year ago. Ever since then, Will has been followed by sh [...]

    19. Story: 5 starsArt: 5 starsOutstanding YA graphic novel about a girl struggling to come to terms with the death of her parents which occurred almost a year ago. Her hobby is making lamps, and the book is filled with all these literary and visual metaphors of light, dark, and shadows. The pacing is just right and the frames flow smoothly. Dialogue feels natural, with just a hint of Southern dialect thrown in. Some of the best sequential art I've seen.

    20. WOW! Now here's a great, fun, thought provoking, beautiful book. Laura Lee, count me among your fans. Your book made me laugh. And cry. That is what I look for and love in a story. Do yourselves a favour people: read this book!Apparantly, it's being converted to a play. I am eager to see the results.

    21. I know: one star, but the writing was full of platitudes and just plain shitty plotting. The whole thing lacked technique. The illustrations were great, but this was no good. In particular, there was a problematic subplot about race.

    22. Pretty good realistic graphic novel teach you that you can't hold onto things/fears and to let go in life; can't be scared to letting go and everything,everyone, and it's okay to be scared sometimes.

    23. I really dig Gulledge's books because they talk about the value of creative people and the importance of embracing that creative spirit in whatever shape or form it comes. I love her art and I love how positive these books are.Long, thoughtful review forthcoming.

    24. A little pretentious about technology, but I love the drawings of the shadows and the lamp/light sculptures!
