Rabagliati's strip "Paul: Apprentice Typographer" was one of the highlights of 1999's Drawn & Quarterly anthology, and his first comic book Paul in the Country won the 2000 Harvey award for Best New Talent. This, his first graphic novel, is eagerly anticipated by comix connoisseurs who enjoy a sweet, unsentimental story about being a teenager and Rabagliati's crisp retro-modern 1950s drawing style. This book continues the story of Paul, a Quebecois teenager in the 1970s, as he experiences the first conflicts of responsibility with his desire to be free. Paul is outraged that he is forced to stop his high school art training. But he's been asked to put art aside because his other grades are so terribly low. Defiant, he quits school and anticipates a summer of leisure. But instead Paul follows the path of so many Quebecois teenagers: he lands a job as a counselor at one of the many summer camps in the mountains outside the city. There he finds himself guiding a motley band of kids, misfits and troublemakers, much like himself. After quitting school and trying his luck in the "real world," average teenager Paul gets a job as a counselor at a summer camp run for underprivileged children in 1970s Quebec.… (mere)

I discovered this book on the shelf at my local library. Having been a summer camp counselor myself, I picked it up and read it. The story begins with Paul dropping out of high school. Due to his poor grades, he is not allowed to participate in a mural artwork project which he has thrown his heart and soul into. Devastated and angry, Paul drops out and finds a menial job at a printing press shop on the outskirts of Montreal. He quickly realizes that this life is not meant for him - he wants better things in life. However, he is very lucky - he has loving, understanding parents who love him no matter what. Then a strike of good fortune - his priest at his local parish recruits him to be a summer camp counselor at a rustic summer camp for underprivileged children set on a beautiful lakeside in the middle of a quebec mountain range. There, he learns (and then teach!) rock climbing, self-reliance, responsibility - and falls in love for the first time. Then, he has a very special camper - a little girl who is blind. One of the most touching books I have ever read, it tells a story about a young man coming of age - not without the help of some very good people. OK, I better stop typing now, as I am getting all misty-eyed. Such a touching read. Highly recommended to anyone. ( )

How can you not love Paul? He starts out as a high school dropout, winds up working at a printing shop, and then quits his job on a whim to fill a recently vacated position of camp counselor. Completely divorced from his cushy homelife, Paul begins to learn how good he's had it as he encounters a series of campers who've had some hard knocks but take life in stride. To top it off, Paul falls in love with his teammate--hey, you've got to have a summer love while at camp! The ending is fantastic, drawing the story back in on itself--easily one of my favorite graphic novels I've read this year. ( )

The simplified art style is attractive and makes for an easy read, but the book is a fairly typical example of its genre.
