Gingerbread Girl: 08/11/11
Gingerbread Girl by Paul Tobin is a graphic novel that spans the course of a date between Annah and Chili. Annah lives in Portland, works at Powell's, sushi and men and women. She also believes that her mad scientist father removed the Penfield homunculus and turned it into a twin sister named Ginger. With her sister run off, Annah can't feel the intensity of emotions everyone else can and she's desperate to reunite with Ginger.
The events of Annah and Ginger's lives unfold as the evening progresses. To make things more interesting the story jumps from character to character, each one giving their version of things. It starts with Annah, moves to Chili and on through a variety of other characters, including a pigeon and a dog.
As I'm right now nearing the end of Fullmetal Alchemist I am fully willing to belive Annah's story. That said, the book leaves the conclusions up to the reader.
I read the book via NetGalley. You can also read it online.
