The Lovereading4Kids comment
Stunningly drawn, this graphic novel brilliantly charts the deep and sometimes desperate conflicts and moods that prevail in teen years. Teenage witch Skim keeps a diary in which she records all her thoughts, hopes and fears. There’s the grief and anxiety following the suicide of a boy in school, her own inner loneliness and then the complexities of romance. Easily accessible, it gives a sympathetic and realistic view of adolescence.
Skim by Mariko Tamaki
After a boy at school takes his own life, teen-witch Skim's fragile world seems to topple and turn upside down too. In honest diary entries, Skim confides the frenzy of grief that surrounds her, while deep down she struggles with her own loneliness and the secret inner stirrings she feels when falling in love for the first time.
