Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life V.1 by Bryan Lee O'Malley

This humorous and light-hearted graphic novel takes place in Toronto and centers around 23 year-old Scott Pilgrim and a kooky cast of characters which includes Stacey, the younger sister, Wallace, the boy crazy roommate, and his Bomb-omb bandmates.

Lately Scott has been stuck in a rut, as he is "in between" jobs and his friends won't let up about his 17 year old girlfriend, Knives Chau. However, things start looking up when the rollerblading girl from his dream turns out to be someone who actually exists: enter Amazon Canada delivery gal, Ramona Flowers.

After Scott and Ramona begin to date, Scott discovers that he is in a real pickle. How will he break it off with his current girlfriend, crazy Knives? Will he be able to trump the rival rock band, Crash and the Boys? How will he thwart off Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends?

I can't wait to read the next volume to see what shenanigans Scott will be involved in next. Although as an adult I really enjoyed this read, the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series will have strong appeal to the teens.
