Rock and Roll Love

Front Cover
Disney-Hyperion, Mar 28, 2007 - Juvenile Fiction - 112 pages
When Misako comes to the U.S. as an exchange student from Japan, she is overwhelmed by all the differences—the people, the culture, the indigestion! But with the help of her kind host family and their daughter Natalie, she quickly acclimates to her American high school.

Then one night, Natalie brings her to see a band and Misako meets Zak, the lead singer. Suddenly Misako's world is turned upside down. Zak is gorgeous and his songs rock Misako to the core. She falls for him hard, but Zak is a girl magnet and much too flirtatious to trust as a boyfriend. So Misako suppresses her feelings and becomes his friend instead. But then Zak starts to give Misako mixed signals. Should she risk their friendship to tell him how she feels? Or will she end up hurting everyone she cares about?

Based on the author’s own experience, this is an exuberant and funny tale of all the ups and downs of first love.

After a long stint of unemployment and even homelessness, Misako walked into the offices of The Onion and charmed her way into her first job as a comic cartoonist. Her first book was Biker Girl . Rock and Roll Love is her second graphic novel.
