Grace Kwon, track star, lead in the school play, and newest admit to Stanford, has some issues to work out. On her 18th birthday, she is mystically greeted by three versions of herself: six-year-old Grace Kwon, 29-year-old Grace Kwon, and 70-year-old Grace Kwon. As she prepares for opening night of her school play and wonders whether she should go to the Valentine's Dance, Grace also has to figure out why her other selves are here... and how to get rid of them!

On her 18th birthday, overachieving but single Grace Kwon comes face to face with herself--at 6, 29, and 70. The school play is canceled due to lack of funding as Grace tries to come to terms with her "selves" and figure out what she is supposed to do with them.Imaginative, funny, and thought-provoking.

The title captures only a small part of this story about a girl who suddenly finds herself saddled with versions of herself at 7-ish, 20-ish, and 80-ish, each with their own baggage from the past.

I'm really starting to fall in love with the graphic novels that Minx is making. They're full of humor, touching moments, and are cute, realistic graphic novels. In this one, the girl has help from three different forms of herself that appear on her 18th birthday - her 6 yr old self, her 29 yr old self, and her 70-something year old self. Really funny, really touching.

Fun and engaging like all the Minx titles.

Illustrations are okay. Story is not super engaging.

On Grace's eighteenth birthday, she is suddenly visited by...herself. At the ages of six, twenty-nine, and seventy-something, to be precise. These doppelgangers may just change her life, if she can keep them out of trouble in the meantime.The focus throughout is on Grace's character, as we learn about her and exactly what she could teach herself at each of these ages, varying from love to sibling rivalry. The story has a nice blend of humor (Grace has to keep her 29-year-old self from hitting on the hot young English teacher) and more serious elements.

On the evening of her 18th¿s birthday, Grace Kwon meets three individuals in the park who turn out to be herself at ages 6, 29, and 70. None of them understand why this is happening, but Grace tries to keep her past and future selves hidden in her room while she attempts to figure out a solution. This doesn¿t last long as 6-year-old Grace is needy and always hungry, 70-year-old Grace is a bitter chain-smoker who doesn¿t want to babysit her younger self all day, and 29-year-old Grace is trying to date teenage Grace¿s drama teacher ¿ the very one she has a crush on currently. While her different selves are making a mess out of her personal life by getting involved in a fund-raiser for the school play, a dance, and the play itself, Grace is also afraid of how unhappy her future selves are and worried about how her life will turn out. Only when Grace figures out the life lessons each of them need to teach her will her other selves return to their own times. This was a quick and pleasant read, with a minor subplot involving Grace¿s sister Lily (which refers to the title), and what identity might mean to today¿s Korean-American teen. While the story might be a little light on substance, teens who are more interested in being entertained than the drama that accompanies some graphic novels will enjoy this title.

The MC finds herself seeing well, herself but different ages. This was interesting what with the premise and the cover. It was okay, good but okay.

I loved this book. I just randomly grabbed it at the library because I liked the cover and it ended up being great.

Grace at 18. Good story line; cool protagonist; entertaining supporting characters are all included in this magna. Grace has an opportunity to "view" herself in the past, the future, and the far future and as she "views" her life she is able to become comfortable with past issues and possible future situations. U will enjoy this comical journey & U can read this in one day.
