I loved the art style. And the idea. And the complexities of the lives of the members of Supper Club. But I also found it confusing at times. There were 6(?) members of the club but I only knew the names of the main three girls. And there was another girl who looked just like Lili so sometimes I wasn't sure if it was her or the other one on the page. That said, it was a very enjoyable read, and I teared up a bit at the end when Iris and Nora were talking about the Italian Rainbow Cookies. I wish I had a cute food-based club with my friends!

This is a cute, quick YA graphic novel about 3 high school seniors. Although there were challenges for the characters, I enjoyed relaxing into the story of their friendship. Food is always a great way to connect!

Food and friendship...what more can you ask for? Told in a fast paced but engaging full of heart and laughter that are great for readers who are looking for a coming of age story of high school seniors finding themselves through real life and food.

Thank you, Edelweiss for providing me the DRC as an exchange with honest review!

Meet Nora and two of her lovely friends who tried to have the best senior year of their lives! I pretty much like any stories that involve simple, heartwarming stories with food being served all over the pages. The story was light, typical high school teens' problems about family, friends, and academics (though not so much for the last point).

Reading this will satiate your hunger for a cute story about friendship but obviously not recommending reading this when you're hungry, it'll make you hungrier!

this was a cute and fun story. i think i was expecting a little more depth, and maybe because it took place over a whole year it was hard to feel a deeper sense of connection, but overall it was a sweet story. i loved the art style and the monochromatic spreads!

Overall, I enjoyed this graphic novel. I had slightly higher hopes for it because I assumed the idea of sharing comfort and company over food would be a bigger part. There were a lot of open endings and I was not entirely satisfied by the ending in and of itself. I do appreciate the art and the story but I feel like the whole Supper Club aspect could disappear and be replaced with just like regular hang outs and the book would be that same. And that is what is disappointing because I love reading and talking about food. It is such a unique way to bring people together and I had hoped that the author would incorporate this more, but it fell flat for me. The food that the girls made was not talked about enough for me. Like what’s the story behind these dishes? Why are they important? Where do they come from? What variations are there? The only recipe that was thoroughly talked about was the Italian cookie recipe and I find that a little odd because there were so many other dishes that could’ve really dug into some ethnic backgrounds and history.
