Adrian Piper is used to blending into the background at his Texas high school. He may be a talented artist, a sci-fi geek, and gay, but those traits only bring him the worst kind of attention.
In fact, the only place he feels free to express himself is at his drawing table, crafting a secret world through his own Renaissance art-inspired superhero, Graphite.
But in real life, when a shocking hate crime flips his world upside-down, Adrian must decide what kind of person he wants to be. Maybe it’s time to not be so invisible after all—no matter how dangerous the risk.
In Draw the Line, Laurent Linn’s debut novel, he writes a charged story—illustrated with his own extraordinary drawings—about discovering your own superpowers, deciding how to use them, and where to draw the line.
I’d never heard of this book before TLA where I was able to get a signed copy, it’s now a book I can’t wait to dive into. I have the feeling that it’s gonna be really hard to read, but also really going to hit a lot of amazing notes. I can’t wait to see how this book develops and I hope that it not only delivers on what I’m hoping, but that it also bring a voice to some really great issues we’re all dealing with.
I do know that this book is probably going to be one of those that waits until I’m feeling the right mood for something like this, because I highly doubt it’s gonna be light and fluffy.
