Their families hate each other. Mir’s grandfather drew The TomorrowMen, superheroes on their way to big screen success, but Weldon’s grandfather reaped all the profits. When Weldon is sent to stay with his aunt in small town Canada after a series of bad decisions, he and Mir meet in the comic book store where she works, and they feel an instant connection. But as old resentments stir and new ones fester, can Mir and Weldon get past the past, and heal some old wounds? Fun and funny, with a deep appreciation of comic book culture and fandom, as well as building up a cast of well-rounded secondary characters to either love or hate, Comics Will Break Your Heart is a very enjoyable YA read, especially for the comic geeks among us. – Rachel Hyland
