About this deal

But living at Ellsmere is far from ideal: she is labeled a 'special project', Ellsmere's queen bee is out to destroy both her and her new friend Cassie, and it's rumored that a mythical beast roams the forest next to the school .

This is the second book I've read by Faith Erin Hicks and I have to say that I love the way she captures a teenagers life. Her art resembles roughly what you'd find in a volume of Scott Pilgrim—only with a touch more detail and (probably) a touch more heart. No, not because it was an agonizing read, but rather because it was so short and shiz that I had to take a good five seconds after I read it to really comprehend what I just read. But all of the plot was pretty predictable and the "moral", such as it was, is obvious and a bit strained.Obviously, it's hard to spend a lot of time on something when you have such limited space - 144 pages really isn't that many - but if it wasn't possible to increase the space, maybe it could have been more focused. Examples of past projects include: improving the management of early esophageal cancer using endoscopic mucosal ablation techniques, improving the management of achalasia using endoscopic techniques, improving the management of complicated pancreatitis using transgastric endoscopic drainage techniques, improving the management of asthma in patients wiht morbid obesity by combining standard medical therapy with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and improving the management of type II diabetes in patients with morbid obesity by combining standard medical therapy with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.

Passenger lists are your ticket to knowing when your ancestors arrived in the USA, and how they made the journey - from the ship name to ports of arrival and departure. I was surprised by the thing in the woods; it was not at all what I thought it would be and I was left nonplussed.This precedes and is not nearly as good as Friends with Boys but has her deft, manga-esque capturing of emotions with small gestures and lines. From body language and facial expressions to colors and shading, her art style conveys so much information and feeling. It came out of nowhere, and I think the book would have been better, or at least no worse off, without. It's not so much that teenagers are shallow (though many are), but their depth of experience certainly is.

I’m also in the midst of writing and drawing a brand new original graphic novel which has not yet been announced, but I occasionally post artwork from it on my twitter or Instagram.Juniper wins a scholarship to the prestigious Ellsmere Academy boarding school but soon finds herself at odds with the rich toff girls who see poor people as entertainment. That seems to be exactly what's going on with Emily, and I like that Hicks didn't fall into the popular=mean cliche. She (of course) catches the evil eye of a girl who is never really stated to be the most popular, though at least as concerns Jun's story, the girl is far-away the most powerful.
