Product Details


A thought-provoking, beautiful exploration of the artistic process.”–Kirkus Reviews

“This bold book wakes us up to an urban tribe that operates in the margins. The powerful, primal art feels so organic to the next, it’s hard to imagine one without the other.” — Nikki Grimes, award-winning author of Bronix Masquerade

“Shimmers with authenticity and the actual dynamics of what it’s like to be a teenager facing both the volatile world of street art and the insular nature of high art. Every character feels like someone I’ve known, debating how art fits into their life.”—Ron English, acclaimed street artist, culture jammer, and designer of Popaganda

* “Chibbaro’s gritty novel follows Ror as she figures out what type of artist she wants to become while using her drawing to channel her grief. Illustrator Sovak, Chibbaro’s husband and collaborator on 2011’s Deadly, skillfully conveys Ror’s artistic talent in vibrant and emotionally resonant b&w sketches. … Period references (Blondie, Keith Haring, the Reagan administration) provide context, yet the book feels modern and relevant as this striking combination of story and illustration creates a powerful portrait of a budding artist.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
