I received this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest reappraisal. An huge thanks to DC comics for this free book. All opinions are my own.
TW : homophobia, homophobic aspersion, physical rape
Jake Hyde lives in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, a city in the defect, with his overprotective mother, tidal bore to keep him safe and away from the water, since his forefather drowned. But Jake is attracted to and longs for the ocean, he wants to leave his hometown where he feels suffocated and go to college on the seashore, while Maria, his best friend and neighbor, wants to stay there and Jake ‘s ma wants him safe and sound with her.
But Jake is n’t safe, not when he starts to question his sex, not when he applies to Miami University without telling anyone, not when he ‘s attracted to the swim team captain, Kenny, who is out and rebel and stick out in their hometown, bullied for being himself.
Jake ‘s liveliness is complicated and full moon of secrets, secrets he hides from others and secrets he does n’t even know about himself. When the clock comes to face them, will he be ready ?
I loved You brought me the ocean. I already knew Julie Maroh and Alex Sanchez and this graphic fresh is simply amazing. The artwork is so beautiful and evocative, I was very in beloved since the inaugural foliate. The plot is captivating and I was right off able to relate and connect to the characters and their struggles.
Jake feels trapped in his hometown and his eagerness to get off and explore the world and the oceans, his dreams, fears and secrets are drawn and written skillfully.
So his relationship with his overprotective and kind mother, with odoriferous Maria, with rebel Kenny. It was thus sweet reading how lento Jake starts to understand his own feelings and decided to be himself around himself and others. How Jake starts to question his “ birthmarks ” and his affinity for the water, how he discovers his powers and past.
I was able to feel how he felt, his being trapped and eager to explore, to move, to be true and honest to himself.
Maria and Kenny are besides amazing characters, Maria with her secret feelings and the trouble of being honest with herself and her best friend, Kenny with the fact he did n’t want to conform to anything and pretend to be anyone, with his complicated relationship with his beget, who is struggling to accept his sex.
It ‘s beautiful and intense read about Jake ‘s travel, in discovering his identity, his sex, supported by his supporter, love and family.
You brought me the ocean deals with a lots of important themes, like homophobia and strong-arm ( since foremost Kenny then Jake excessively are bullied by the bigots of the town ), coming out, the difficulties of following your dreams, the loss of parents, friendship issues, physical assault.
It ‘s a book about the trouble and persuasiveness in being true and honest to oneself, friendship and first love.
I recommend to everyone who wants to lose her/himself in a fantastic graphic fresh about identity, love, courage and friendship.
