'Cause she's not

I do not read enough graphic novels. I adore the mix of art and story-telling, but I never seem clued in to when really good ones are published. It may be time to hunt down a site to keep me up to date.

I learned about Skim from a random twitter post. (Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying twitter?) It's all about a high school girl called Skim because she's not. It follows her crush on her Englsh teacher, her troubles fitting in with any sort of group, and her fascination with a classmate whose boyfriend committed suicide.

It's a wonderful book. I think teens would find a lot to relate to here - all the uncertainty and awkwardness and angst. I give it a 6.
