OLDER FICTION
(3) YA Translated by Susan Ouriou. Illustrated by Daniel Sylvestre. Struggling with rejection at school and with her single mother's addiction, Ophelia is inspired when a visiting author gives her a blank notebook. Ophelia, a graffiti artist, claims an abandoned building for her art, which leads to friendship with fellow outsider Ulysses. Abstract collages and line drawings are effectively layered into a poetic text (translated from the French), creating a vivid representation of Ophelia's artistic journey.
