Losing the Girl (Life on Earth #1)
|Series:||Life on Earth|
High school math prodigy Claudia Jones is missing. Her classmates share rumours of an alien abduction - when they're not struggling with early romances, fraying friendships, and the other challenges of young adulthood. Emily's trying to handle a life-changing surprise. Paula's hoping to step out of Emily's shadow. Nigel just wants a girl who will laugh at his jokes. And Brett hardly lets himself get close to anybody.
Different chapters focus on different characters, each with a unique visual approach.
In Losing the Girl Eisner-nominated cartoonist MariNaomi looks at life through the eyes of four suburban teenagers: early romance, fraying friendships, and the traces of a mysterious-maybe otherworldly-disappearance.
The next step forward in graphic novels for young adults. Critically acclaimed graphic memoirist MariNaomi turns to YA fiction and creates a bold, compassionate, and sci-fi-tinged trilogy.
