Every winter, straight-laced, Ivy League bound Evan looks forward to a visit from Lucy, a childhood pal who moved away after her parent's divorce. But when Lucy arrives this year, she's changed. The former "girl next door" now has chopped dyed black hair, a nose stud, and a scowl. But Evan knows that somewhere beneath the Goth, "Old Lucy" still exists, and he's determined to find her... even if it means pissing her off.

Garden State meets Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist in this funny and poignant illustrated novel about opposites who fall in love.

About the author (2011)

Stephen Emond started his career by drawing a comic strip called Steverino. It helped him develop as both an artist and a writer. He thought the comic strip was a great way to learn writing because every strip has a beginning, middle and end. He did 25 page books every month with three cartoons per page. He won a national contest - the Andrew-McMeels/Follett College Store┐s STRIP SEARCH: DISCOVERING TOMORROW┐S TOP CARTOONISTS TODAY and had his comic printed in a book of the same name. The next cartoon character was Emo Boy. He has superpowers but they were destructive. Then came Happyface - a comic about a boy who suffered a terrible tragedy but puts on a Happy Face and swallows all the pain. The next project was the Emo Boy movie directed by Kyle Newman. After the movie, Stephen Emond began writing an autobiographical comic strip Lemons.
