Resource Description

Thirteen-year-old Charlie attends a spiritual, all-girls outdoor camp hoping to find her connection to God through nature, but as the only black girl, she finds it difficult to fit in. Charlie questions her values, her faith, and even her participation in this journey of self-discovery, but she is heartened when she and Sydney, a transgender participant who also feels on the outside, become friendly and plot to derail the final ceremony of the camp. This engaging graphic novel deals with mature themes of identity, acceptance, and belong in a gentle way accessible to students. Suitable as a class read-along, literature circle set, or independent reading. Log in to read the full review.
