College is the best time of your life - or is it? Jane has left home for the first time to attend a small Lutheran college expecting to make friends and lasting memories until she finds out her roommate is her complete opposite in almost every way. Katt means well, but her views on partying, boys, and even religion begin to drive Jane crazy. The two girls struggle to find their place not only as roommates, but as individuals trying to construct their adult conception of relationships, education, religion, sex, secrets, family, home and ultimately, of themselves. In their first few months at St. Urho College it quickly becomes apparent to both Jane and Katt that there's more to college than just going to class. This might just be the best time of their lives, even if they don't realize it yet.

Tyler Page lives in Minneapolis with his wife Cori Doerrfeld (who is also an artist) and their daughter. He was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2003 and received a Xeric Foundation grant in 2007 to publish the first volume of Nothing Better. When not drawing he serves as the Director of Print Technology Services at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. This is his fifth book.Review:
The characters... are beautifully nuanced, with [a] blend of insecurity, excitement, conflict, humor, and depth. (There's a little of Craig Thompson's Blankets in there... actually.) In particular, [Page's] insight into the minds of early college students is spot-on; it's hard to decide whether to sympathize with them or slap them as they grapple with the big questions as though no one has ever considered such things before.
