12 Days

By June Kim

When Jackie's female lover Noah leaves her to marry a man, it feels like a death.

When Noah dies in a car accident, it's even worse - because now she can never change her mind and come back to Jackie.

Over 12 days, to get Noah out of her system, Jackie takes her ex-lover's cremated ashes and blends them into smoothies - which she drinks. One a day. For twelve days. And she and Noah's brother spend those days together - remembering, grieving, and figuring out how to move on.

Here's a link to an article where the author talks about manga and creating this graphic novel.
