This illustrated bakery romance might be the most charming thing ever

Kevin Panetta's sweet, gentle graphic novel Bloom is just the thing I needed on a low day. In Savanna Ganucheau's gorgeous monochromatic illustrations we meet Ari, a college student who has returned home to work in his parents' beach town bakery, feeling trapped by his familiar surroundings. Enter Hector, his kind new assistant, who could teach Ari to appreciate what he has, if he'll only give the guy a chance.
 
Reminiscent of classic teen rom-coms, Bloom is endlessly charming, and the illustrations of the baking process will be a treat for fans of The Great British Baking Show, or pretty food in general.
