Synopsis

My Life in Pictures by Deborah Zemke

Bea Garcia is an artist. She draws anywhere and everywhere, showing us her world and helping her make sense of it. When Bea's first and only best friend Yvonne moves to Australia, Bea is devastated. And it only gets worse a loud, rambunctious boy moves into Yvonne's old house, a boy who is absolutely nothing like Yvonne. The whole situation makes Bea feel rotten. But in the end, her drawings save the day by helping her forge new friendships. Told in Bea's own words and pictures! My Life in Pictures is a charming and spunky story of unexpected friendship.
