I picked this book up at the public library as I'm a fan of graphic novels. Great way to get a whole novel in in a couple hours somedays, with some very well drawn graphics in black & white.
This novel follows Danni who's mom has brought her to the mountains of Oregon to start fresh. Mom ends up dating and then moving in with a guy named Hank, who has a very good looking son named Haskell. In this small community of just over 400, Danni has a friend named Viv who is brilliant when it comes to math, but unfortunately she uses her gift to determine the probability of her teacher checking out her breasts and other such things. Danni has to share a room with Haskell and she watches him sneak out late at night out the window. Eventually, under the blindness of her crush for him, Danni stalks him and learns that he is trying to stop the deforestation that the loggers are causing. The question looms, at what point is too much?
This graphic novel does contain mature content, including profanity and sexual content. Recommended for grades 8 & up.
