It's a cute, romantic comedy kind of story with fun artwork. I was expecting it would turn out to be allegorical... But it wasn't, really. It's just a girl dating a bear because he treats her better than most. There is some exploration of acceptance (or not acceptance, from some characters) but I guess it's more about understanding what you need and want out of life and being fine with that no matter what others say (whether it's dating a bear or reading popular magazines instead of deep and meaningful books that give you a headache).

A fun and eccentric graphic novel about a young woman who is fed up dating men that always seem to have a problem/issue so she decides to date a bear. I though this was pretty cute and loved the illustrations.
