Paige Turner has just moved to New York with her family, and she's having some trouble adjusting to the big city. In the pages of her sketchbook, she tries to make sense of her new life, including trying out her secret identity: artist. As she makes friends and starts to explore the city, she slowly brings her secret identity out into the open, a process that is equal parts terrifying and rewarding. In this graphic novel, Laura Lee Gulledge crafts stories and panels with images that are thought-provoking, funny, and emotionally resonant. Teens struggling to find their place can see themselves in Paige's honest, heartfelt story.
“Gulledge's b&w illustrations are simple but well-suited to their subject matter; the graphic novel as a whole is a good-natured, optimistic portrait of a young woman evolving toward adulthood.” -- Publishers Weekly
