Hicks has created a compelling, emotional graphic novel sure to touch a chord with many readers. Maggie is headstrong and independant with a quirky sense of humor. Her relationship with her father and brothers feels real and each of the characters in the story is given a depth of character not often found in the graphic novel world. The art is clean and shading well-done. My only criticsism is that the paranormal aspect seems a bit unnessessary. While this seems to be a stand-alone graphic novel, I would love to see more of Maggie's high school adventures and plan to keep an eye out for Hicks's forthcoming work.
