"How strange it is, to be anything at all." — Lewis Carroll Everybody loves Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's mad-beautiful tale of one young girl’s trip down into the under-world, through the looking glass—and back again. The reason it is so beloved by people of every age, race, creed, and religion is because of its poignant reflection of the inner-journey, the process and unfolding of self-discovery. Not everyone knows this; some just know that the story enchants them, and that it's full of imagination and wonder. Whatever your take is on the story, if you're reading this...chances are you're a fan. Chances are that this story has called to you at various points in your life, and that it still calls to you, and that is not coincidental...for there are pieces of yourself still hidden in this story, and Alice's journey...is your own. Every character in every story that's ever been told is a part of yourself; a representation of all the parts that make up the whole of your being. It’s like when you interpret a dream—every character in the dream is ultimately you, a part of you... a fragment of the whole. The stories, myths, and legends of our time all work to resolve these fragmented pieces, to bring them to the whole, and to return us to the truth of our being. To me, Alice in Wonderland is more than just a story of self-discovery, or soul-discovery... it is a story of ultimate Self-Realization. To me, it is a story of awakening. Awakening to the ultimate Truth. This story can be interpreted in a plethora of ways, and all of them would be right—because interpretation is entirely dependent on the current state of consciousness of the person who is doing the interpreting. There IS NO hard and fast meaning behind the story; it is in the eye of the beholder. It's all perspective...as is everything in life. So it is with this in mind that I invite you on this journey with me—to walk your path through Wonderland, to walk fearlessly through every reflection that appears in the looking glass of life, to pick up all the missing pieces of yourself, and to reclaim your inner-Alice: that feverish curiosity and desire to "know," that wildly un-sure venturer who's willing to dive head-first down the dark of a rabbit-hole, that fearless heroine in you who questions EVERYTHING, and turns the whole apparent world upside down—if for no other reason than to thwart the convention that's been trying to stifle you all the days of your life. This is the Alice that we ARE. This is the Alice we are stepping back INTO. Although this adaptation is based on Carroll’s book Through the Looking Glass, it does not actually depict the scene of Alice going through the mirror, and neither does this book. The book is titled as such, however, because it is a powerful metaphor for the spiritual journey: moving through all that you appear to be, and seeing who you truly are. It speaks to the truth that this world is a reflection of your thinking, and that freedom is acquired not by changing your thinking, or trying to re-wire it (although that might hold you for a while), but by moving beyond thinking, and truly beginning to see the illusion that our minds are perpetually creating. In the safe and loving confines of this book, your Alice will bravely move through the mirror, and discover the profound freedom that lies beyond all of our fixed and painful judgments and opinions. With the help of this cast of supporting internal characters, we will move through our no-thing-ness and our some-thing-ness and wrap it all up in a sweet little bow, to deliver it back to ourselves—as the priceless gift of this one precious life.

Paige Turner has just moved to New York with her family, and she?s having some trouble adjusting to the big city. In the pages of her sketchbook, she tries to make sense of her new life, including trying out her secret identity: artist. As she makes friends and starts to explore the city, she slowly brings her secret identity out into the open, a process that is equal parts terrifying and rewarding. Laura Lee Gulledge crafts stories and panels with images that are thought-provoking, funny, and emotionally resonant. Teens struggling to find their place can see themselves in Paige's honest, heartfelt story. Praise for Page by Paige “Gulledge's b&w illustrations are simple but well-suited to their subject matter; the work as a whole is a good-natured, optimistic portrait of a young woman evolving toward adulthood.” –Publishers Weekly “A sweet coming-of-age graphic novel about an artistic introvert. Paige’s sketches are soft and expressive, and Gulledge does an admirable job of providing insight into Paige’s musings, creating a very intimate ambiance for this well-fleshed-out character. The artist masterfully commands her piece, creating a cohesive and fluid work that cascade smoothly along. Teens are sure to relate to this wallflower who blooms—gloriously.” –Kirkus Reviews “Gulledge has crafted a protagonist who’s introspective with a capital I, and she conveys her character’s thoughts and emotions in ways that are fresh but never feel forced. That same easy, organic quality is found in the book’s design: the story panels and Paige’s sketches blend and interact effortlessly. It all makes for a truly fresh coming-of-age—graphic—novel.” –Horn Book “An elegant portrayal of the interactions of Paige’s external and internal states.” –Publishers Weekly

An enthralling literary debut that tells the story of a young girl’s coming of age in the cutthroat world of New York City ballet—a story of obsession and the quest for perfection, trust and betrayal, beauty and lost innocence. In the roiling summer of 1977, eleven-year-old Mira is an aspiring ballerina in the romantic, highly competitive world of New York City ballet. Enduring the mess of her parent’s divorce, she finds escape in dance—the rigorous hours of practice, the exquisite beauty, the precision of movement, the obsessive perfectionism. Ballet offers her control, power, and the promise of glory. It also introduces her to forty-seven-year-old Maurice DuPont, a reclusive, charismatic balletomane who becomes her mentor. Over the course of three years, Mira is accepted into the prestigious School of American Ballet run by the legendary George Balanchine, and eventually becomes one of “Mr. B’s girls”—a dancer of rare talent chosen for greatness. As she ascends higher in the ballet world, her relationship with Maurice intensifies, touching dark places within herself and sparking unexpected desires that will upend both their lives. In the present day, Kate, a professor of dance at a Midwestern college, embarks on a risky affair with a student that threatens to obliterate her career and capsizes the new life she has painstakingly created for her reinvented self. When she receives a letter from a man she’s long thought dead, Kate is hurled back into the dramas of a past she thought she had left behind. Told in interweaving narratives that move between past and present, Girl Through Glass illuminates the costs of ambition, secrets, and the desire for beauty, and reveals how the sacrifices we make for an ideal can destroy—or save—us.

“Hilarious.” (NPR’s All Things Considered) "Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny. Fans of Smile and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will appreciate this debut." (Brightly.com) Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis—and not just because she’s starting middle school or because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis. From debut author and professional doodler Booki Vivat, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Akin to Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Frazzled is heavily illustrated, embarrassingly honest, and sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.
