Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki, brings forth the melancholic, confusing, tragic, and emotional life of a perfectly woven imperfect character nicknamed Skim. Skim has to deal with jerky popular school girls, a crashing and burning relationship with a friend, depression, the death of a classmate, and the question of her sexuality. Is there a silver lining to all of this? Falling in love, learning something new, and finding something that was always there.
