Review quote

BOOKLIST -- While Mildred struggles with her
feelings for Lee, a bad boy she met in detention, Sonny is intrigued by the
mysterious new girl in school, despite his reluctance to move fully into
adolescence. Mildred's troubles are compounded by Lee's still-current
girlfriend, from whom he is unable to break away, and by Mildred's friends,
Lottie and Shauna, who are full of unhelpful advice. Meanwhile, the usual
problems of school and family cause their own stresses for the teens. As in the
other volumes of the popular webcomic series, Allison seamlessly blends
realistic teenagers, full of both silliness and angst, and fantastic events, in
this case, Sonny's crush, which has a strange connection to both a fur pelt
Lottie found on the seashore and a weird, hairy man who has been seen in town.
Allison's bright colors perfectly highlight his expressive art, with each
character having his or her distinct personality. The result is a charmingly odd
story that will appeal to both teens and adults.
