Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Story This is the story of Shira Spektor; it is 1987 and all she wants is for things to be the way they were. But her father is dating his secretary; her best friends are her Grandmother and her friend. And then she meets a strange guy. She could use some advice but her mother passed away when she was three. Between the conflict with her dad at home and the other girls at the Jewish school, Shira needs an outlet and she finds shoplifting. Yet she realizes that her life is spiraling out of control but does not know if she wants to put the brakes on. Wonderfully written and illustrated, this is another example of a great graphic novel geared for girls. The MINX line was announced with much fanfare but DC Comics canned the line in less than two years and now has even removed the webpage supporting these great books.

Editorial Reviews

BOOKLIST 11/15/08

Shira lives in a Miami hotel with her widowed father and her grandmother. When Shira’s father begins todate his secretary and their relationship turns serious, Shira has trouble accepting how he is changing. And,for his part, her father can’t communicate as well with an almost 16-year-old Shira as he could when shewas just a little girl. Shira turns to petty shoplifting and the arms of a mysterious Spanish boy to cope withher feelings. All the ingredients of a standard—and credible—YA problem novel are here, but Kwitney’s script and Jones’ expressive black-and-white art make the story fresh and worth the quick reading time. Relationships are authentic, and both adults and teens evidence a true depth of character. The sadly soonto-be discontinued Minx line again upholds its standard of well-crafted and original work, and readers ofToken will want to look to Re-Gifters (2007) and Good as Lily (2007) for similarly well-told tales about the emotional hardships of growing up through accepting others as well as oneself.

Appropriate for ages: 13 - 17
