Every winter, straight-laced, Ivy League bound Evan looks forward to a visit from Lucy, a childhood pal who moved away after her parent's divorce. But when Lucy arrives this year, she's changed. The former "girl next door" now has chopped dyed black hair, a nose stud, and a scowl. But Evan knows that somewhere beneath the Goth, "Old Lucy" still exists, and he's determined to find her... even if it means pissing her off.
Told from two perspectives, this funny and honest novel by Stephen Emond (Happyface) is a unique combination of text, comic strips, and art. It's an indie movie in a book, perfect for the inner outcast and lovelorn nerd in us all.
Two childhood best friends struggle to hold onto their friendship as 17-year-olds, discovering how much they've changed and what continues to hold them together in this coming-of-age young adult novel. Evan and Lucy were inseparable until Lucy's parents had an ugly divorce and she moved to Atlanta. Coming back just once a year to visit her father in New England for Christmas, the two stay close. However, during their senior year, things have changed. Lucy has cut off all her hair, dyed it black, and seems to be hiding something. Evan, a straight-laced kid with an incredible talent for art, desperately wants to know what happened. Secrets, friendship, and romance create a cozy, appealing story. With black-and-white graphic novel style illustrations throughout.
