Resource Description

Paola’s journey from conception to high school graduation is detailed in graphic format, including her complicated relationships with family and friends. She struggles with sibling rivalry, finding her own identity, her father’s decision to move away, and making decisions about drug use, smoking, and sex. This coming-of-age graphic novel portrays the complex issues young people face in their journey from childhood to young adulthood, and its mature content makes it best suited to silent reading or independent study by senior students, to launch discussions and personal reflection, and to explore the techniques of graphic artistry.
