About the book:
Giant Days follows the hilarious and heartfelt misadventures of three university first-years: Daisy, the innocent home-schooled girl; Susan, the sardonic wit; and Esther, the vivacious drama queen. While the girls seem very different, they become fast friends during their first week of university. And it’s a good thing they do, because in the giant adventure that is college, a friend who has your back is key -something Daisy discovers when she gets a little too involved in her extracurricular club, the Yogic Brethren of Zoise. When she starts acting strange and life around campus gets even stranger (missing students, secret handshakes, monogrammed robes everywhere . . .), Esther and Susan decide it’s up to them to investigate the weirdness and save their friend.
Giant Days deals with the first year of Daisy, Esther and Susan.
Completely new they are introduced to Ed Gemmell who has a weakness for Esther. Ed’s friend McGraw is an old friend of Susan, further in the book you’ll find out the right story about them.
First parties, first love experiences, bullying, fears and first exams bring the most hilarious scenes with them.
Giant Days is a wonderful graphic novel where many a girls or boys will recognize themselves during his / her first year in a student house. Unguided missiles that have to find their own way on the road to maturity.
Fun drawn, funny stories and a foretaste of the second part in this series.
