By Pat Schmatz, illustrated by Bill Hauser
Maxie's always doodled. In fact, years ago she had a friend Rick who'd come up with crazy inventions and Maxie would draw them out...
But something horrible happened to Rick and he disappeared.
Suddenly, Rick shows up in Maxie's high school Chemistry Class! Is he the same person she knew? Or is he... different?
Set in a brutally homophobic high school, Maxie's story is illustrated with sketches and comics from her notebook - as through her art she tries to work through the struggles and choices that may just turn out to be life or death...
