But sometimes going against the grain is starting to feel like she's going against her friends, and Ripley's not sure if being unique is all it's cracked up to be. So when she meets a Zebracorn with the ability to blend in anywhere, Ripley's starts to think she should take on a new identity, one that looks more like everyone else.

In this third and final volume, New York Times best selling author Lilah Sturges and acclaimed artist polterink take Ripley - and us - on a journey to discover who she truly is, and reminds us that showing others your true colors can help you see theirs, too.

Lumberjanes: True Colors is the third in the Lumberjanes Original Graphic novel series. Delightfully, you don't need to be up to date in the main series to enjoy this one (but I would still strongly recommend following that series, mainly because of how amazing it is).

One of the many (many, many) things I adore about Lumberjanes is that the series always seems to be welcoming new creative members. Lumberjanes: True Colors was written by Lilah Sturges, and illustrated by polterink.

There's no such thing as a dull moment at Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqual Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types (try saying that ten times fast). Especially not when Roanoke Cabin is looking for an adventure!

Ripely is without a doubt one of the bubbliest and quirkiest characters of the series, but in this graphic novel, she has a lot to learn about appreciating oneself and standing out. Her desire to blend in results in a new adventure, while everyone else learns about listening and loving their friends for who they are.

That really does make it sound like a perfect Lumberjanes story, doesn't it? A sweet plot with a message worth learning. Don't worry, there's a whole lot of chaos along the way as well, these are the Lumberjanes we're talking about. So it's kind of a given.

Lumberjanes: True Colors was a delightful read, from start to finish. It was a lot of fun to read, and really is a perfect graphic novel for people of all ages – though I especially recommend it for any younger readers out there who are struggling to love who they are.

The artwork in Lumberjanes: True Colors deviates slightly from the main series (like the rest of the original graphic novels), but I honestly love the style. It reads like a cross between watercolors and printmaking, and honestly? It's divine. The botanical details fit very nicely with the whole camp theme, and it really just enhances the look and feel of their world.

So, I know I'm probably a bit biased in recommending Lumberjanes: True Colors, since I'm a major fan of every piece of work that has come out of this world. But seriously, it's so sweet and fun, and I cannot possibly recommend it enough to all of my friends and fellow graphic novel readers.
