    I read this because I was looking over the shoulder of someone else in this house reading it and recognized the drawing style and distinctive coloring of Brenna Thummler, whose illustration work I liked very much on her and Mariah Marsden's adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of ...

    This didn't work for me as a YA graphic novel or a juvenile graphic novel. Protagonist Marjorie Glatt (dear lord that name) is a middle schooler who's horrible father has left her as the sole person in charge of her beloved dead mother's laundromat. That's right, a child has been p...

    ***NO SPOILERS*** A cute ghost and grieving girl meet in this unusual middle-grade graphic novel whose solemn tone and subject matter may be appreciated more by adults than by tweens. Sheets tells of Marjorie Glatt, a thirteen-year-old girl whose mother recently died. With a father ...

    It's 1998 in Marjorie's world and the feels are no less in 2018. "Mom opened glatt's Laundry when she was only nineteen. Bath then, it was "Dellaway Laundry", which is loads better. But then she met Dad and lost the ability to make rational decisions."...She died the past spri...

    Brenna Thummler illustrated the fabulous, wonderful, I can't-say-enough-good-things-about-it Anne of Green Gables a graphic novel, so when I saw she was flying solo on her own debut graphic novel, I didn't hesitate to pre-order a copy and pay the full price for it. When it arrived, ...

    Rating: 3.5 stars In Sheets we follow Wendell, a ghost wearing a sheet, and Marjorie, a young girl running her family's laundromat. At first, we jump between their two stories but eventually, they weave together. This is such a sweet read, both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I abso...

    It has been a long time since I've read a graphic novel where I left it FEELING something. Don't get me wrong, I love graphic novels and I think they're so fun, but few really have left an emotional impact on me. I'm leaving this one, feeling the mark of that impact. (or should I say "...

    I honestly don?t understand why this graphic novel has such low ratings on Goodreads. It?s not the best book I?ve ever read, but normally there?s something really wrong with a book to get so many one and two stars. I don?t often question an average rating, because we?re ...

    my rating: ??? This was a sweet and cute story with innocent characters but still with heartbreaking points. It revolves around Marjorie, a girl who lost her mother and she takes care of the family business while she feel out of this world, and Wendell, a ghost who doesn't fe...

    Such an interesting new kind of story. There aren't too many stories set in a Laundromat and it sets up the tone very well. Down trodden and an endless cycle. There is a creepy weird dude named Mr. Saubertuck who is trying to take advantage of the family who owns the Laundromat. He wan...

    Local Friendly Ghosts, Grief, and Solitude Sheets illustrates the determination of a young girl to fight, even when all parts of her world seem to be conspiring against her. It proves that second chances are possible whether life feels over or life is over. But above all, i...

    Almost 2 completely separate stories until halfway through the book. One, a very boring story about a middle school girl, Marj, who has lost her mother and has to run her family's laundry service in addition to school. The other. a much more compelling story of a recently deceased boy ...

    I loved this. Following review is taken from here. A really sweet, middle-grade story of a young girl, Marjorie, just trying to get over her mother's death and figure out her place in the world. But it also has ghosts. The cool thing about these ghosts is that they wear ...

    Sheets by Brenna Thummler is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. I found the first part of the book a bit slow but it did pick up when there was more interaction with the ghost. I felt for the girl and the ghost but I wasn't too invested in them. I found th...

    4.5 stars Well now, this was a very nice find. I'm still trying to ease my way into the world of graphic novels, and Sheets did a wonderful job of sucking me in. On the surface the plot is pretty straightforward: At just 13, Marjorie is forced to grow up in a hurry when tragedy ...

    I was bowled over by Brenna Thummler?s illustrations in Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel so when I heard she had written her own graphic novel I was all in. I simply adore Brenna?s ability to capture an image and present it in a way that I want her to draw the entire world f...

    Actual rating: 3,5 stars! Such a lovely, lovely story, with themes like grief, isolation, and hard work that seems to be for naught but isn't. While the story is mostly slice-of-life, the supernatural element gives it an extra bit of pizzazz, but also makes it more... childish, I th...

    So, let me start this by saying that I am a huge fan of graphic novels as a whole, but it's true gems like these that having me ranting and raving at my local comic book shop, asking everyone what they're reading and immediately adding it to my TBR. I would like to say that I was s...

    Sheets not only pleases the eye but also tugs your heartstrings. The story follows Marjorie who tries to save her mother's laundromat from going to the hands of a businessman, while her father suffers from the loss of her mother. The story isn't complicated but it's so heavy on the...
