This book would definitely be a little too mature for a school library, but it was so much fun nonetheless! Nora is a white twenty-something working in a call center and has always dated douchebags. She finally finds the man of her dreams-he is funny, smart, kind, and loved to cuddle, BUT he is a bear. A real, live, American black bear. He breaks alot of her things, plays with her cat, eats alot of food, and juggles, but they make it work. Soon though, like bears do, he has to hibernate and they must be separated for all of winter. Sarah has to figure out if she can make it through the winter alone, despite her friends' and mother's protests, or let her Bear go.
Overall, this story was fun! The graphics are simple and stunning and help the reader feel how Nora is feeling. As a fellow twenty-something, I could identify with many of Nora's struggles and wanting for MORE. MY BOYFRIEND IS A BEAR is hilarious, fun, beautiful, and does not disappoint.
Mucho thanks to Margot from Oni Press for giving me access to this ARC ahead of time. <3
