    We learned in the last Lumberjanes novel that Molly and her parents didn't see eye to eye and that she was afraid to invite them to Parent's Day as the camp wasn't what they assumed. They thought they were sending Molly to a camp for young ladies - a bit like Finishing School. Of course, they got a shock as they arrived late to Parent's Day and discovered a different sort of camp. Now that Summer is heading to an end and soon it will be time for the Lumberjanes to head back to their real lives.

Of course, they got a shock as they arrived late to Parent's Day and discovered a different sort of camp. Now that Summer is heading to an end and soon it will be time for the Lumberjanes to head back to their real lives. In Time After Crime, Jo our resident scientist has been busy creating an invention to measure time as they have noticed some strange oddities happening and in parts, time seems to move slower. One evening, Molly hears a wee voice telling her how to slow down time, as Molly doesn't want camp to end - she does what the voice tells her. However, the consequence for slowing down time is about to cause a whole lot of mayhem for the camp as stranger than usual things start occurring like Ripley becoming a giant and their camp leader Jen - a little girl and Rosie - ages to a really old woman. Can Jo and the rest of the Lumberjanes save the camp and turn back time. Find out in Volume #11 of the Lumberjanes Graphic Novels and stay tuned for more fun Lumberjane adventures.

    Another fun volume in the Lumberjanes series! I wasn't in love with the art this time around but I did like that we got a little bit more info on the weird time stuff that is going at the camp, although in true Lumberjanes fashion it definitely raised more questions than answers. I hope the next volume continues in this direction.

    Story This was an interesting take on "living in the moment". One of the janes doesn't want to return home at the end of the summer so they do something foolish to extend their time. I continue to find this series endearing. It talks about a lot of friendship and making the kinds of friends who like you for you are and not pretending to be what you're not to fit in with the crowd. It does so with humor and fantasy elements that always have me reaching for the next volume. Artwork I feel like the Story This was an interesting take on "living in the moment".

Early on it was fairly consistent, but now it seems like they keep rotating through artists. None of it is ever bad, it's just never quite the same.

    This one was not one of my favorites. I didn't care for the art and the story line wasn't the best. While I liked that Molly wanted to slow down time, I didn't really get the whole tree stone statue sentry voice thing. Oh well. Here's to hoping the next volume is better.

    Fun fun fun! Someone has messed up time at the Lumberjanes camp and the Roanokes are on the trail! I love the situations Watters and crew keep coming up with! And I love Ripley every time! So sad that I'm now all caught up on volumes! I read this for Seasons of Reading's SciFi (& Fantasy) Summer Readathon.

    I feel like this one was the perfect continuation to Lumberjanes, Vol. 10: Parents' Day. In volume 10, we saw Molly's struggle with her family and how the Roanoke campers have become her family. In this one, Molly, concerned about going home to a crappy family, makes a deal with the voice of an unseen entity, to slow time down at camp "a little" so she can stay longer. Of course, hijinks ensue.

    While I'm not a fan of the art of this volume, I did actually really enjoy this story arc. While it did not really advance Molly's story quite as much as I would have liked, it did introduce (or reintroduce) a few interesting elements. Rosie's roll and nature, the return of Abigail, the sentries and the new sinister voice in the forest. While I'd felt that this series has been a bit filler-y for a while now, this volume gave me hope again that it is building to something.

Yet, sadly, this trade did not do much to advance the characters. While there was a little more focus on Molly's horrible home life, none of the rest of the girls got a lot of time to shine. Still, I'm still in love with this series and can't wait to see where it goes next.

    Another fun Lumberjanes adventure. I loved how we get to see Jo go full science-nerd in this volume! The whole strange time-moving thing is so curious and I hope it means the Lumerjanes will never have to leave camp! This one was full of danger and drama and yay for Molly!

    I was kind of disappointed in this arc of my favorite series. I get the increasing feeling that the story is just resting on its laurels and delivering the same familiar beats without engaging the reader or growing the characters. It was fine, but I know the series can do better.

    Ooof. It's really, REALLY hard to criticize a series you truly love, but it has to be done here. The new art style is not good. The characters at some point don't even look like themselves. Even worse, at other times they look so similar you can barely tell who is who. The little things that used to make this series a visual treat are gone in favor of nearly amorphous blobs with no pupils or teeth. Even more disappointing is the story line.

The series seems to have lost its humor and joy, and that makes me sad.

This volume of Lumberjanes does a lot of something I've kind of decried the series for up until recently - it's really building a lot of continuity. There are multiple returning characters, a theme that's been prevalent for quite a while now, and even a 'to be continued' type ending that we haven't seen since the end of volume 1. It gives the series a bit more weight, and while short and sweet story arcs are nice, 40 issues in it's time to get to the meaty stuff. The story itself is pretty good Janes fare, if a little easily resolved, but it puts the spotlight nicely on Molly who is usually content to sit in the background and let everything pass her by. We learn a lot about her through her actions here rather than her words, and her attempts to solve the problem that she's created. Plus there's some time travel hijinks, which is always fun. The artwork's by Ayme Sotuyo, who has drawn the past four issues and some previous volumes as well, so if you're a fan, then you'll like the visuals here too. I'm loathe to say 'now we're getting somewhere', because this book's always good, but it definitely seems to have turned a corner in terms of taking advantage of it's ongoing series status, and that only makes it even more enjoyable.

    I honestly really enjoyed this volume, just like I've been enjoying them since the seventh volume. The stakes felt higher than they have in the last few ones, though, and I really liked that. I even felt nervous for the characters and the camp at times during Time After Crime. Once again, the characters are impossible not to get attached to, and the story, illustrations and everything else are just so adorable and cute that it all feels like a warm hug.

I'm seriously glad that my library keeps on getting the volumes in this series as soon as they come out; especially considering the fact that they don't even have that many books in English. Someone who works there obviously loves this series, or knows someone who does, and I am so thankful for that person. I wish I could write a longer review, but honestly, it's the first review I've written in a while and I'm a bit rusty. Plus, the trade is only 112 pages long. Therefore, I'm going to keep this short and sweet, and say that this series makes me feel so good, just like a cup of hot chocolate would.

    when I heard time hijinks, this is not what I was thinking of, which is high praise. Time bubbles are causing localized changes in time, aging people and things back and forth, leading to some interesting reversals of relationships. The central story spends too much time on Molly feeling guilty, and there isn't as much humor as some of the other volumes, but there's a lot of action and imagination (I love the impact of time movement on the camp).

All in all, it's a nice volume, but not a particularly memorable one; a step up from the previous volume (parents) but not up to Watters' best.

    The girls noticed a while ago that time didn't seem to pass normally within the camp, so Jo has decided to use her skills as a scientist & inventor to try to measure differences in the flow of time around camp. However, Mal listens to a mysterious voice in the middle of the night and the girls must deal with the events that transpire because of her actions. I love these books.

"For Dolly Parton's sake!" or "Thank Nancy Wake" These are recommended reading for everyone!

    I'm a little disappointed in this one. I'm not a fan of this artist as there is a lack of details for the characters, and it kind of ruins the story when you don't get to see them reacting as much. The actual story is okay, but again, this felt like not a lot happened. I feel like they're rushing these stories and aren't actually getting into the characters anymore. This series started off amazing, and slowly it's becoming just okay.

    I missed a TON of volumes in between the last Lumberjanes TPB and this one, and it was noticeable. Still a bunch of fun, but I didn't recognize some characters and some references went over my head—I assumed I had just forgotten important plot points, but it looks like I missed Volumes 7 through 10, oops. I'd recommend... not doing that? The art in this volume wasn't my favorite. It distracted from the story a bit and dimmed the usual Lumberjanes charm for me.

    I honestly can't get over how perfect this series is. Of course you have all the things people talk about; girl power, acceptance, love. But the sheer level of adventure, mystery and (I am sorry to use this analogy) LOST level depth, is just incredible. It's another rare graphic novel that each issue or volume various adults and kids in my home are fighting over to get to read first. Watters is just something special in the world of creators.

    Timey-wimey, wimbley-wobbly. There's a place in the woods near camp where time flows more slowly. Jo is researching it, but before she can draw any real conclusions, it gets even slower. What caused it? And how will the Lumberjanes fix it? The series is now in more of a monster-of-the-week format instead of the original friendships and relationships against a background of weirdness. Still a fun series, but it was better when Noelle Stevenson was on board.

    It pains me to give such a low rating to one of my favorite series, but this collection just really didn't do it for me. The story felt very haphazard and I was confused about what was happening most of the time. (Which could have been just me, but why did they have to build the tree houses? I'm lost.) Additionally, the conclusion of the sentry's story felt very lackluster to me. I hope the next volume is better.

    I have to say I’m getting tired of this series. It’s just dragged on a really long time and the plot devices seem increasingly far fetched. Plus, is this all within one summer? It’s not clear to me, and since it probably is, there never seems to be any growth in the characters. I would love to see what would happen if they decided to let the girls “graduate” and then come back (or not) the next summer, but I’m not sure I’ll continue with the series with the way it’s been going.

    Most definitely my least favourite in the series. The transitions and the art made some of it hard to understand what was going on when things were already pretty nonsensical, beyond the craziness that is Lumberjanes operating baseline. To be honest this was the worst version of the series as well. Molly breaks my heart though. Here's hoping the next volume is better, because the series hasn't lost me. Yet.

    Angie

    I can't believe I am saying this but this was not my favorite Lumberjanes. I really disliked the art/illustrations and it detracted from the story. I like my Lumberjanes stories to have an equal balance of weird/crazy stuff and personal tidbits from the characters. This story was heavy on the weird and really light on the personal. We get a bit more about Molly's terrible life at home, but that is it. No one else really gets a chance to shine here.

    I'm not crazy about the art style now, and I definitely miss having different artists on variant covers. It was nice to see Abigail back, though I had to look back to remind myself of her story. There seems to be a lot of focus recently on what happens after camp, which makes me wonder if there are plans to wrap the series up. Which might actually be a good idea, I'm starting to worry there will just be a slow decline in how good these are.
