I was initially reluctant to read this graphic novel memoir because I thought that it would be depressing. It is the story of a man who falls in love with a woman who is HIV-positive. Her young son is also HIV-positive. But, as the title suggests, it is a positive (not just HIV-positive) love story. This story felt true, sweet, and honest throughout and never become melodramatic or sentimental. Bill Pills is a small treasure of a book with wonderful drawings that will leave you with a great appreciation for life and love. I could not put it down.
