No Ivy League Reviews

  • Maia
    Hazel grew up white, middle-class, vegan, and home-schooled in Portland, OR. Lacking a social circle outside other home-schooled teens, Hazel had no idea how sheltered she was until she started a summer job pulling invasive English ivy out of parks in youth nature summer program. For the first time,...

    The ARC of this graphic novel was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I think this book only touches the surface of a major problem which is white privilege. Hazel doesn’t realize how sheltered her life has been until she has the chance to work alongside a...

    I feel like this graphic novel bit off more than it could chew, tbh. It tried so hard to do so many things and I feel like every aspect was lacking because of it. I am SO BUMMED that I didn't love this....
  • Tatiana
    Earnest, but needs so much more reflection, because ultimately this homeschooler-meets-the-real-world narrative touches upon many issues (white privilege, racism, dating a younger and a much older man, etc.) but understands absolutely none of them....
  • destiny ♡⚔♡ [howling libraries]
    I sadly didn't like anything about this beyond the art, which wasn't cute enough to save it from a 1-star rating. Right off the bat, the representation of the side characters feels... really uncomfortable and poorly done to me? I mean, we have a book where a character is learning to observe her whit...
