Giant Days, Volume 2: 03/06/17
Giant Days, Volume 2 by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, Max Sarin, and Whitney Cogar begins with revisions before winter holidays. It's the first big make or break period for these first year students. It's also a time to pair off with boyfriends or girlfriends.
Goth girl Esther is living my recurring university nightmare; she's signed up for a bunch of classes and has completely blown the off. She's not entirely sure even when or where the finals are. Revision for her is going to take a miracle. One of her classes includes a theology introduction and now she has to go to source for help.
Susan, meanwhile, has gotten herself into trouble and needs rescuing. Not euphemistically, but actual rescuing. It involves a nightclub and a crazy plan. Daisy, meanwhile, has the revision part down. School's going great. But she's still trying to figure herself out. She might be a lesbian. She might be bi. She's not sure.
My favorite part though, (besides Esther and her revision madness) is the first big snow of the year. I'm laughing for two reasons: first one is the snow we've been having up and down the west coast. Hilly Vancouver is besides itself with getting a year's worth of snow in three days. The second reason is that we're moving to a place where snow is a usual thing. We will be those goof balls trying to cope come the next winter.
