"A funny, poignant, memorable drama of navigating adolescence." Quill & Quire After a boy at school takes his own life, teen-witch Skim's fragile world seems to topple and turn upside down too. In witty, moving and painfully honest diary entries Skim confides the frenzy of grief that surrounds her, while deep down she struggles with her own loneliness and the secret inner stirrings she feels when falling in love for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Writer Mariko and artist Jillian stunningly entwine their acute dialogues and visual riches in brush, soft pencil and grey tones, illuminating this adolescent romance in all its conflicted depths. The most sophisticated and sensitive North American graphic novel debut of the year * Paul Gravett *
Stunningly drawn, this graphic novel brilliantly charts the deep and sometimes desperate conflicts and moods that prevail in teen years. -- Julia Eccleshare * www.lovereading4kids.co.uk *
The Tamakis have done the hardest and most rewarding thing an artist can do: they have captured the texture of real life and made it into something beautiful. -- Katherine Farmar * The Irish Times *
