This issue was so perfect. These last two no wait last three were one big perfect ending. Our heroes grow, they get resolutions to their stories and are ready to face what ever may come next.
This issue, like the entire run was about the future. The whole series the kids have been planning and asking what to do next. For the most part (except when the answer is breakfast) they’ve been kind scared or in a panic. Now they are embracing the future. They aren’t running from themselves or their mistakes. They know who they are and know they kick butt. The are ready for anything.
The example that struck me the most was David charging into his future head on.
And then there’s Noh-varr. Finally thinking about someone else and doing something for Kate just for the sake of doing it for her. He’s taking the first conscientious steps the make a new future for himself and everyone around him.
And of course Billy is going to be incredibly obvious and upfront.
While I am sad to see this book end, I’m left feeling optimistic and upbeat. The future is wide open and ours for the taking. This issue said goodbye so sweetly and appreciatively. Thanks YA team.
