friends with boys

After years of homeschooling, Maggie is starting high school. It's pretty terrifying. Maggie's big brothers are there to watch her back, but ever since Mom left it just hasn't been the same. Besides her brothers, Maggie's never had any real friends before. Lucy and Alistair don't have lots of friends either. But they eat lunch with her at school and bring her along on their small-town adventures.
Missing mothers...distant brothers...high school....new friends... It's a lot to deal with. But there's just one more thing...
I liked this one. Plot-wise there's not much going on and everything kind of finishes slightly unresolved, but the art is great and feels really familiar to me even though I don't think I've seen Hick's work before.
It's a great book for teens, about being different and accepting change, all that badness that you deal with in your teenage years. I really did enjoy it and was kind of sad it went by so fast!
