Olive's favorite thing to do is just hang out with her best friend Charlie, riding bikes and eating at the local Chinese restaurant. But something is off in Olive's life, something she refuses to wrap her brain around.

Rosemary Valero-O'Connell's If Only Once, If Only For A Little While starts out as a slice of life comic, but it quickly becomes clear that something is lurking beneath the surface, something that only momentarily startles Olive until she's finally ready to face it. Go read the whole thing, and be prepared to sigh once it's over.
