New from syndicated comic strip artist Mark Tatulli comes a full-color middle grade graphic memoir that centers on Mark's own experience in the summer after seventh grade. As a middle schooler, Mark finds himself on the smaller side of the physical spectrum--being short AND skinny has really wreaked havoc on his confidence. So to end his bullying woes and get the girl--or at least the confidence to talk to the girl--he starts to explore bulking up by way of the miracle cures in the backs of his comics. But his obsession with beefing up is soon derailed by a new obsession: Star Wars, the hottest thing to hit the summer of 1977. As he explores his creative outlets as well as his cures to body image woes, Mark sets out to make his own stamp on the film that he loves. Mark Tatulli's graphic memoir debut is a humorous and heartfelt take on body-image, finding a creative outlet, and spending a summer in the 70's.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Mark TatulliPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 10/16/2018ISBN: 9780316440516Pages: 256Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.60w x 0.60dReview Citations: Booklist 07/01/2018 pg. 42Kirkus Reviews Fall Preview 08/15/2018 pg. 68Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 11/01/2018Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 199720 / Short & SkinnyReading Level: 2.8 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 1
