Story of Maggie and how she deals with the problems of growing up and not having her mom there to help!

A guide to a teen's first year in high school full of all the ups and downs, relationships, and family issues that are the core of the teen experience. The biggest fear of our heroine is change though, this manifests in many ways, she is quite conscious of any kind of change around her (eg. her dad's haircut, her brother's fighting, changing from home school to public). The thing that keeps your attention though is the mysterious circumstances between Alister, Daniel (Maggie's brother) and Matt...what you do in high school marks what you will be like for the rest of your life, and these three show three different types: one was a popular jerk, but changed for the better, one was bullied, but remains kind, and the last is a popular bully who won't change. The only thing that doesn't make much sense is the ghost. It seems like it was put in as an attempt to make a plot, whereas this is a character driven story and doesn't need it. Even with these loose ends, it is a top-tier graphic novel.

Quite a sweet, quirky little story that, while aimed at adolescents, is a satisfying quick read for an adult.

Really liked this -- it was a sweet, insightful (and humorous) read! And surprisingly great art at times. One of the Hub Reading Challenge eligible titles.

recommended by Sarah from her Maverick list (graphic novel committee)

I understand the transition from being home-schooled to entering public school. But is Lucy supposed to be considered a boy? When the protagonist did what she did, why didn't her new friends (who were older) stop her? Where were the morals? I couldn't get over it
