Carole Maurel & Mariko Tamaki

At 32, Luisa encounters her 15-year-old self in this sentimental and bold story about self-acceptance and sexuality.

A disillusioned photographer has a chance encounter with her lost teenage self who has miraculously traveled into the future. Together, both women ultimately discover who they really are, finding the courage to live life by being true to themselves. Luisa’s sexuality is revealed to be a defining element of her identity, one which both of her selves must come to terms with. A time-traveling love story that turns coming-of-age conventions upside down, Luisa is a universal queer
romance for the modern age.

MARK WAID

"It’s not just the best comic I’ve read in years, it’s the best book I’ve read in years. It moved me deeply and uses the medium brilliantly. Highly recommended."

Booklist

Maurel’s painterly, naturalistic artwork, in sumptuous full color, beautifully conveys the story. . . . should resonate with plenty of readers.
