Bloom cover

A young adult graphic novel about two young men fall for each other in the bakery where they both work.

Now that high school is over, Ari is dying to move to the big city with his ultra-hip band - if he can just persuade his dad to let him quit his job at their struggling family bakery.Though he loved working there as a kid, Ari cannot fathom a life wasting away over rising dough and hot ovens. But while interviewing candidates for his replacement, Ari meets Hector, an easy going guy who loves baking as much as Ari wants to escape it. As they become closer over batches of bread, love is ready to bloom . . . that is, if Ari doesn’t ruin everything. Writer Kevin Panetta and artist Savanna Ganucheau concoct a delicious recipe of intricately illustrated baking scenes and blushing young love, in which the choices we make can have terrible consequences, but the people who love us can help us grow.
