about

With just five dollars and a knapsack to her name, fifteen-year-old Harleen Quinzel is sent to live in Gotham City. She's not worried, though--she's battled a lot of hard situations as a kid, and knows her determination and outspokenness will carry her through life in the most dangerous city in the world. And when Gotham's finest drag queen, Mama, takes her in, it seems like Harley has finally found a place to grow into her most "true true" with new best friend Ivy at Gotham High.

But when Mama's drag cabaret becomes the next victim in the wave of gentrification that's taking over the neighborhood, Harley gets mad. She decides to turn her anger into action and is faced with two choices: join activist Ivy, who's campaigning to make the neighborhood a better place to live, or join her anarchist friend Joker, who plans to take down Gotham one corporation at a time.

From Eisner Award and Caldecott Honor-winning author Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Steve Pugh comes a coming-of-age story about choices, consequences, and how a weird kid from Gotham goes about defining her world for herself.
Mariko Tamaki is a Canadian writer living in Oakland.

Editorial Reviews

"The fast-paced plot enhanced by Harley's trademark style of speech examines the impact of gentrification, and Harley’s character development follows a redemptive arc that will have readers rooting for her and her colorful family. A riotous read." —Kirkus Reviews"Mariko Tamaki’s voice is absolute perfection in this altogether refreshing spin on a young Harleen Quinzel’s beginnings. Anchored by stunning art by Steve Pugh, readers get to revel in a Gotham City that has drag queens fighting gentrification, a familiar-named practical activist going against an all-consuming corporation, and an endearing delinquent just trying to find the fairy tale that fits her remarkable life. Shantay you stay (on my bookshelf for decades to come), Breaking Glass."—Sina Grace, GLAAD Media Award nominated author of Iceman
