About the Author

It was a New York Times-bestselling, Eisner and GLAAD Award-winning comics series that broke the mold of both YA and superhero comics.

BOOKLIST -- Werewolves Julie and Selena and centaur Chet, along with Chet's significant other, Manuel, go to a fraternity party in which they enter a fairy circle. When some of their friends drink the fairies' beverages, they are stuck within the circle until they are able to meet the fairies' demands. In this second volume in a series, we continue to see Julie and Selena's relationship evolve, going through the typical ups and downs of young love, although the relationship is never portrayed as angsty. The characters, who mainly consist of imaginary and mythological creatures, refreshingly represent a range of cultures as well as sexual and gender orientations. To match the whimsical tone, the illustrations are fanciful in muted pastels, with thin lines and plenty of detail. While the main story arc is resolved at the end of the volume, there is an unresolved feeling that will have dedicated readers waiting for volume three. In the meantime, despite the relative youth of the characters, point those eagerly awaiting Julie and Selena's next chapter to Whitney Gardner's Fake Blood.
