Description

Molly Bauer loves her hometown of Peachtree, North Carolina. And her favorite part about her town is the prestigious art school, Peachtree Institute of Collegiate Arts. On the first day of attending this school of her dreams, the spunky freshman-buoyed on the native Peachtreeian Full Ride Scholarship-discovers her scholarship . . . is defunct. Rather than take out loans her parents can't afford, she uncovers a lesser-known scholarship in the PICA financial-aid policy book. If she and a dozen other art students can win a single game at the varsity level, they'll all be retroactively qualified for a PICA athletic scholarship. It's a softball scheme for the ages.New York Times best-selling author Ngozi Ukazu returns with debut artist Madeline Rupert to tell an energetic story about college failure.

Critic Reviews

"The diverse ensemble cast is hilariously written, ingeniously personifying and exaggerating the delightfully weird, bombastic student body of an art school." -BCCB, starred

"The characters have well-developed personalities, and their interactions thoughtfully explore themes of teamwork, coming out of your shell, trusting in yourself, and learning to rely on others as the pressure to win a game mounts." -Kirkus

"Ukazu, known for the Check, Please! graphic novel duology, has once again created an appealing coming-of-age college narrative." --SLJ

"Fans of Ukazu's popular Check, Please! series will adore this crew of weirdos bonding and working together." -Booklist

"A hilarious, kinetic, and blisteringly accurate portrait of art school from three masters of the craft. Ngozi, Mad, and K are at the top of their game." - Gale Galligan, New York Times-bestselling adapter of The Baby-Sitters Club graphic novels

"Pitch-perfect." - Gaby Epstein, author of Danny Phantom: A Glitch in Time
