About this item

After a hate crime occurs in his small Texas town, Adrian Piper must discover his own power, decide how to use it, and know where to draw the line in this stunning debut novel exquisitely illustrated by the author.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 none of those social groups get him ... at all. In fact, the only place he feels free to be himself is at his drawing table while he's creating his own world through the Renaissance-art-inspired superhero of his own design, Graphite. But in real life, when a hate crime spurs Adrian into action, he 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.
