The art in this book is phenomenally beautiful and is its one saving grace. The dialogue is either poorly written, poorly translated, or both. The plot is whisper-thin: Orange is a teenage girl who wants to jump off a building because life is lame and being a teen is hard. The author also makes it clear that Orange has a deep aversion to all things sexual, but gives no reason for including this detail and no background on why the character feels this way. Included as a sort of appendix are more beautiful pictures by the author as well as a few strange, near-suicidal rantings of his own that left me confused and uncomfortable.
In a nutshell, what could have been an excellent story is left undeveloped, causing an odd pairing of transcendent pictures and teen angst that makes Bella look mature and well-adjusted.
