Laney Berry's Review of How to Grow Wild Orchids
I must begin this review by pointing out that the main character of the comic is based on me... And that the comic is written by my mother! I will put those facts aside for the sake of this review, however.

"How To Grow Wild Orchids", of which I know the plot structure in its entirety (thanks to the fact that I share a household with the creator), is really a truly beautiful idea. So rarely does one come across genuine emotional struggles and such brutally honest neursoses laid out in the form of a comic. The tale of a mother, ridden with anxiety as she sets out on a quest for missing daughter, never allows itself to get over-sentimental, or too caught up in its own melodrama-- it stays poignant, upbeat and humorous, no matter what problems the protagonist finds herself facing.

A comic for anyone who understands the importance of family, and for those who don't, to realize it.
