about

Paige Turner has just moved to New York with her family, and she's having some trouble adjusting to the big city. In the pages of her sketchbook, she tries to make sense of her new life, including trying out her secret identity: artist. As she makes friends and starts to explore the city, she slowly brings her secret identity out into the open, a process that is equal parts terrifying and rewarding.

Laura Lee Gulledge crafts stories and panels with images that are thought-provoking, funny, and emotionally resonant. Teens struggling to find their place can see themselves in Paige's honest, heartfelt story.

Praise for Page by Paige
“Gulledge's b&w illustrations are simple but well-suited to their subject matter; the work as a whole is a good-natured, optimistic portrait of a young woman evolving toward adulthood.” –Publishers Weekly

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great First Graphic Novel “Page by Paige” by Laura Lee Gulledge tells the story of Paige, a 16-year old girl, who has just moved from Charlottesville, Virginia, to New York. She doesn’t know anybody in this big city, and she feels lonely and scared. She decides to buy a sketchbook and record her thoughts and emotions with drawings. In her musings, she remarks: “I think I was born with my eyes facing the wrong way. Because they’re always looking back into my head rather than looking out”. This sentiment rings true to all of us introverts, and I could certainly identify with the feeling of not fitting in. But what I loved the most in this graphic novel is the fact that the story is semi-autobiographical. Laura Lee Gulledge also moved from Virginia to New York, and art helped her handling stress and depression. This is the author’s first graphic novel.
