Elisha Cooper spent a year hanging out at a Chicago high school— listening and sketching students. He followed eight kids, mostly seniors, through their entire year, and by telling their specific stories he gives us a more general picture of what it’s like to be a high school student. Part documentary, part sketchbook, this is a, thoroughly entertaining account.
