 Scott Pilgrim's life is so awesome. He's 23 years old, in a rock band, "between jobs," and dating a cute high school girl. Everything's fantastic until a seriously mind-blowing, dangerously fashionable, rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts cruising through his dreams and sailing by him at parties. But the path to Ms Flowers isn't covered in rose petals. Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends stand in the way between Scott and true happiness. Can Scott beat the bad guys and get the girl without turning his precious little life upside-down? 
This series blew my mind with it's awesomeness.

Throughout each book, I chuckled, I "awwwwww"ed, and I was on the edge of my seat as Scott battled with ninja-like moves. The wonderfully unique, fast plot grabbed me immediately.

Each character was hilarious, unique, and I want to hug ALL OF THEM! (It would freak them out so bad...but that's only half of the reason I'd do it.) If I had to pick a favorite, it would, can't pick one.

Seriously, if what I thought was going to happen actually did in book six, I would've cried, thrown the book at the wall, and emailed Bryan Lee O'Malley in all caps. That is just the kind of loyal Scott Pilgrim fangirl I am. I would read a zillion more of these books, and I'm so sad it's over.

I love this series a million times over. The plot, the writing and animation, the humor, the romance, the characters...I can never say enough good things about Scott Pilgrim.

Plot: WOO HOO!
Characters: WOO HOO!
Writing/Animation: Awesome!
Ending: Perfection...but slightly confusing. (Hopefully re-reading the series will help.)
How kid friendly is it? Well, there's (not explicit) sex, smoking, language, and drinking.
Should I read it? Um, YES!
