Have you ever had anyone in your life, who reminded you of any LiS characters personality-wise?
She was the girl that made me realize I was into girls. I had met her in my sophomore year of high school (2015) before I had even heard about life is strange. This Junior girl was punkish, had dyed hair, was the sweetest person I’d ever met. And stop me if I sound cliche, (and I say this about every person I met that has a major impact in my life) but I knew she was going to mean something special to me.
She was my Chloe.
She made me feel like I knew what I was doing, she gave me the confidence to stand up to my bullies and not give a shit about what anyone said or thought about me. She’s honestly part of the reason I’m still alive now… We were great friends, and… if I’m honest with myself… I think I loved her.
And… then I moved.
We lost contact and… even though I follow her on Facebook. I never had the guts to call, or write, or text her.
About a month after I moved… I was just… super depressed for a reason I didn’t know. I felt lost… almost like half of a person.
I was heartbroken.
I never got the chance to tell this amazing human being how I felt, and I doubt I ever will now.
But… yeah. She reminded me so much of Chloe once I finally found the game. That’s probably why the game means so much to me.
There’s this girl at my job, kinda punkish Black girl, and her hair is dyed a different color every single week. Not exaggerating, she actually dyes her hair every week
And it’s so damaged that it’s literally like breaking off all up the backside (it’s only just past her ears anyway) and it’s like how your Bratz doll hair looked after you put a curling iron to it cause you ain’t know it was plastic or whatever the fuck. And just stiff and raggedy and puffy at the ends. Mind you, she has a relaxer and it looks like this.
She don’t give a fuck tho, she just keep dying and frying it every week lol. Every time I see it, I wanna cry

“Maybe this is eternal love, this mixture of peace and fire.”
Synopsis: (From GoodReads) Originally published in French as Le bleu est une couleur chaude, Blue is the Warmest Color is a graphic novel about growing up, falling in love, and coming out. Clementine is a junior in high school who seems average enough: she has friends, family, and the romantic attention of the boys in her school. When her openly gay best friend takes her out on the town, she wanders into a lesbian bar where she encounters Emma: a punkish, confident girl with blue hair. Their attraction is instant and electric, and Clementine find herself in a relationship that will test her friends, parents, and her own ideas about herself and her identity.
Review: This book is gorgeous from beginning to end. Nothing that I say here is going to do it any justice. The characters jump off the page and come to life before you. The illustrations are handled with extreme care and every detail in the book is there to set the tone of emotions. From the colors to the way that the text changes from cursive to print depending on the mood of the scene everything builds the emotions and passion of the world that Clementine and Emma live in. With extreme heart and real anguish this book brought tears to my eyes several times.
