By Tillie Walden

An epic graphic novel about a girl who travels to the ends of the universe to find a long lost love, from acclaimed author Tillie Walden.
Throughout the deepest reaches of space, a crew rebuilds beautiful and broken-down structures, painstakingly putting the past together. As Mia, the newest member, gets to know her team, the story flashes back to her pivotal year in boarding school, where she fell in love with a mysterious new student. When Mia grows close to her new friends, she reveals her true purpose for joining their ship—to track down her long-lost love. An inventive world, a breathtaking love story, and stunning art come together in this new work.

“Walden does something important here by clearing the room of males and giving space to other concepts. Science fiction is a great place to explore these issues. It’s a genre of possibilities, and the way that Walden has chosen to explore those is not only solidly within the history of the genre itself but has also given her the opportunity to yield an accessible tour de force.”  The Beat
