The children of U.S. small-town Alexandria are just trying to live like normal teens until their parents' promised return from a mysterious, four-year religious pilgrimage, and Ben Schiller is no exception. She's just trying to take care of her sister, keep faith that her parents will come back, and get through her teen years as painlessly as possible. But her relationship with her best friend is changing, her younger sister is hiding a dark secret, and a terrible tragedy is coming for them all. Filled with teenage loves and fights and parties, Sacred Heart is a wonderful coming-of-age graphic novel set against the threat of a big reckoning that everyone fears is coming but has no proof.

American Library Association 2016 Alex Award Winner (for the 10 best adult books that appeal to teen audiences).

Review quote

...Suburbia's stories take on an immediate and propulsive quality. They remain accessible while addressing complex themes, like the demarcation between childhood and adulthood, faith and religion, love and sex. Suburbia's black-and-white illustrations recalls the punkish light and shadow of Los Bros Hernandez, as well as the '80s-anime aesthetic of creators like Kat Verhoeven or Faith Erin Hicks.--Shea Hennum
