Maggie McKay hardly knows what to do with herself. After an idyllic childhood of homeschooling with her mother and rough-housing with her older brothers, it’s time for Maggie to face the outside world, all on her own. But that means facing high school first. And it also means solving the mystery of the melancholy ghost who has silently followed Maggie throughout her entire life. Maybe it even means making a few new friends―ones who aren’t her brothers. Funny, surprising, and tender, Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks is a pitch perfect YA graphic novel full of spooky supernatural fun.

“Hicks excels at depicting adolescent emotion and the way feelings ricochet off the actions and reactions of others, each teenager suffering a constant and confusing onslaught of hurt and acceptance, infatuation and rejection, loneliness and relief…She also shows flashes of clever humor…But what mostly emerges is a fundamentally sweet and sensitive story, one with a rare, genuine-feeling portrait of loving sibling relations.” ―The New York Times

This dramatic series, being adapted by Caitlin Fryers (Wynonna Earp) will follows Maggie as she navigates life at high school for the first time, meets her new best friend Lucy and life is looking up.  Except for the fact that a silent, but seemingly friendly ghost has been following around for years, and that her mother has up and left and no one is saying why, and he annoying brothers are more annoying than ever.  All in an angst-filled teenager’s day.
