Maggie has a lot going on in her life. Her mother, who has home-schooled Maggie up until this point, has left the family. She's starting high-school with no prior experience, and really no other friends besides her three older brothers. Add to that, she's being haunted by a very sad ghost for reasons unknown. Maggie is really overwhelmed trying to make her way in school. Just figuring out who she's going to eat lunch with, makes her completely nervous. Understandably so, all of us remember the awkwardness of high-school, even with established friends! Maggie ends up befriended by Alistair and Lucy, brother and sister, who are sort of outcasts in school. They look and dress different: Mohawk, piercing, but very sweet. Maggie's oldest brother, Daniel, warns her off of Alistair, apparently he has a past with him. Alistair used to be part of the popular crowd which gave anyone who was different a hard time. But that's in the past, and there's a story behind why he's no longer in that crowd. The story touched my heart, and Maggie's too.
Maggie, the main character was super cute. She's a tomboy who had me at scary movie fan. Who doesn't love a girl that loves the movie Alien? I love her excited quote about Ripley: "I mean, she drives a spaceship and uses a flamethrower and kills the alien in the end-" Aliens is one of my all-time favorite movies. I love it when Ripley gets into that cargo mover and says, "Get away from her, you B%*!" Sorry, didn't mean to get sidetracked, but Maggie is my type of girl! I also loved the family dynamic, and her relationship with her brothers; all those boys, so protective of her. The twins were a crack-up, always killing each other but under all that you could see their affection. Like I said before, this was the first graphic novel I've ever had the pleasure of reading. I really liked it; so much comes across with very few words. The pictures convey a lot of the emotion. I was hoping there would be a sequel to this story but I guess this is a stand-alone, which is a little disappointing because there were some questions unanswered. I guess it's better to be left wanting a little more than wishing it was over, right? Anyways, I really enjoyed this and would highly recommend to fans of this genre or anyone looking for a cute story.

This story explores themes of change, growing up, and trying to find your tribe. Maggie is new to school, to being around that many people, and essentially to just being friends with anyone else other than her brothers.
Overall, I really enjoyed this. It is probably a book that I will read again in the future. There are enough emotional peaks and troughs that I felt engaged and invested in the story throughout. It’s funny in parts, heartbreaking in others. Well worth a read.
It is very pleasing to see a webcomic artist graduate successfully into print. I hope to see more work from her in the future
