The last chapter of the Almost Summer saga features Emily and Anthony looking for an apartment and Michelle trying to find the perfect dress for prom night. And then the next thing you know school's out for summer, high school is over and the gang celebrates by going to a cabin in the woods : barbecue, campfire singalongs, occult rituals... wait what?! Things do get a little weird, after everyone eats the "special brownies" prepared by Michelle's mother. This fourth and final volume of Sophie Bédard's coming of age tale is the most sincere, poignant one yet... but also the funniest.
About the authors
Sophie Bédard completed studies in graphic design before launching her breakthrough webcomic Almost Summer at just 19 years old. She then went on to earn a BA in sexology prior to starting Lonely Boys, winner of the Doug Wright Award for Best Book in 2021. She lives in Montreal with her cat Jacques and hopes that obtaining a degree will not become a prerequisite for every new book she writes. She often posts comics and illustrations on her tumblr page: jairiencompris.tumblr.com
