Mercury is a graphic novel that combines two interwoven stories about young girls in small town Nova Scotia. The first takes place in 1859, and involves a girl who falls in love with a possibly shady character who wants to dig gold with her father. The second is contemporary, about a girl whose house recently burned down. How are they connected? A magical necklace!
I liked this. I think I'm a little disappointed because I thought I would looooooooove it. I just like it.
Pros: I do love the art.
Cons: I was a little bit confused by the ending of the historical story. If you've read it please help a sister out.
Recommended for: Teen girls and grown-ups who read graphic novels. The switching back and forth could be confusing for a beginning reader of graphic novels.
