Are drugs good, bad, or indifferent? Daisy is going to discover the truth for herself when she makes friends with the very fun Nadia, who gives her some “fun” pills. Unfortunately, Daisy’s Granny decides it’s the perfect time for a surprise visit, and it’ll be up to Esther and Susan to help her keep it together.
Although not from personal experience, I know that two of the “typical” college happenings are good old raves, and of course, the drugs that usually are present there. Along with that, that’s also a common time to question one’s sexuality, if even that late. Not there has been yet in this series, but there’s certainly no dull moments in Giant Days number 4.
Ah, our little Daisy is finally turning 18, which means even more in England given the lower drinking age. Between the kickoff from Esther and Susan, and the follow up with party girl Nadia, she is in for a heck of a birthday. After a literal all nighter at the club, Daisy has to figure out whether she LIKES likes Nadia only because of the pretty hefty amount of happy pills. Snuck into the story as well is a little history on Susan and McGraw.
Lots of party, lots of fun, lots of awesome artwork. While it may not have been full of amusing flu hallucinations, the effects of Daisy’s evening were a visual crack up. I really enjoy the art for this book, it’s always so lively and brings you into the fun of it. Also, Esther and her revolving door of cute goth attire continues to grow on me.
It was nice to see how easily we could go from last issue’s more serious tone to full on party mode. There’s so much versatility to the stories that they put into this title. It’s been really fun seeing what new things the girls deal with, and I’d like to keep following along for sure.
