May, a young teenage girl, traverses the city streets, finding keepsakes in different places along her journey. When May and her kookum make these keepsakes into a necklace, it opens a world of danger and fantasy. While May fights against a terrible reality, she learns that there is strength in the spirit of those that have passed. But will that strength be able to save her? A story of tragedy and beauty, Will I See illuminates the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women.
Will I See? is a graphic novel about a girl that goes around town and finds keepsakes as she goes. Each keepsake has a story that she sees in front of her.
It is a violent novel. The art is beautiful and I loved the combination of black and white with the red blood.
The book is quite short and has almost no text, the story is told mainly by the images. The plot is simple but enjoyable.
It was a very intense graphic novel but I liked it and I’m glad I picked it up.
Rating: 4 stars
