I probably have more but I literally forgot everything and it's been like ten minutes since I've read the book.

Her published works include Hockey Girl Loves Drama Boy, Friends with Boys, One Year At Ellsmere, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, The Last of Us: American Dreams (with Neil Druckmann), The Nameless City trilogy, Comics Will Break Your Heart, Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong (with Prudence Shen) and the New York Times bestselling Pumpkinheads (with Rainbow Rowell). Emily continues to harass and intimidate Juniper and when Cassie attempts to help her friend, Emily corners her in the forest and threatens her. But living at Ellsmere is far from ideal: She is labeled a “special project,” Ellsmere’s queen bee is out to destroy her, and it’s rumored that a mythical beast roams the forest next to the school.

It's pretty predictable and has the cool girl/poor girl troupe I wouldn't have expected Hicks to play into. The girls in this book, including our protagonist and her slightly spacey friend, act and react like real girls. With revamped art and now in full color, One Year at Ellsmere is an endearing—and surprising—middle-grade friendship story from beloved author Faith Erin Hicks! In further Avatar news, there will be a brand new stand-alone graphic novel about Katara published in October. Hicks’ characters are built of expressions and she sells these effortlessly, taking a character through a range of visible, discernible emotions across the space of a single page.

We personally found the room a little bit too bright in the morning as the curtains let in a little bit too much light (but that is just our personal preference). A very warm welcome from Paula and Steve, once again, the room was fabulous (we stayed in Daisy), beautiful bedding, soft, fluffy towels, and a shower cubicle straight out of the star ship Enterprise :). 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. 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. The friendship between Juniper and her roommate, Cassie was really sweet and I love how they stood up for one another.One Year at Ellsmere is a really sweet story about friendship, belonging and feeling like you don't fit in. After twenty years of suffering through Ontario’s obscenely hot summers, she migrated east, and now lives beside the other ocean in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Student group funding that will either cover a robotics competition or new cheerleading uniforms, but not both. Second, Imbalance, the Avatar: The Last Airbender trilogy written by me with art by Peter Wartman (colour by Adele Matera) is out in a collected edition. It's not Harry Potter, but I can imagine it starting with the thought that it should have been Hermione as the star.
