Falling in love just got sweeter in this charming, romantic YA graphic novel from WEBTOON, the #1 digital comic platform. Ray, a young seer struggling with her powers, discovers first love and friendship in her town's magic bakery.

In a very special town, there’s an even more unusual bakery with a selection of baked treats hand-crafted to help your dreams come true. For Ray, a quiet young woman with special powers of her own, the order is always the same: a hot tea with a delicious side of romance.

When Ray meets Laurie, the kind barista who aspires to be a professional musician, she gets a real taste of love for the first time. But even with a spark of magic, romance isn’t so simple. Both Ray and Laurie are chasing their own dreams and even when Ray starts to see the future, she can’t predict her fate with Laurie.

Based on the beloved webcomic from WEBTOON, this sweet coming-of-age story of friendship and first love comes to life in graphic novel format with gorgeous illustrations and exclusive content.



Review

I guess it is really the best time to pick up a graphic novel. I have been enjoying this book so much. With the current weather, it's a really fun and cozy read.

Crumbs is really a cute, light read that follows along with Ray, who is a seer. She is struggling with the power she has and is trying her best to understand what her power can do. She can see what will happen in the now. Ray always went to this magical dessert cafe before starting her internship, where the dessert would magically make dreams come true, and it was there that she met Laurie, the one whom she fell in love with. Despite her ability to see the future, she is unsure what her future with Laurie will be like. I love how raw and relatable their relationship is. I love both Ray and Laurie and how they both try to accommodate each other. They are so adorable, and I love their chemistry, although there are times when Laurie can be so confusing.

The fact that this is a magical story means I really love their smartphone and how I wish we had what they have too. Gosh! I'm so jealous. Their smartphones are so cute. Can we talk about how beautiful the illustration is? I am in awe of the illustration. Overall, the story is about young love, first love, vulnerable yet so adorable. It is a pretty fun, cute, and wonderful story.
