Click is the heroic story of a young girl who was terrorized by schoolmates with merciless online harassment and her brave effort to overcome her tormentors Her powerful, compelling story is told in brilliant graphic novel form Lexi s story of cyberbullying is a shocking depiction of young teenager s torment in the newfound world of online harassment Lexi, from Northridge, California, is ganged up on by a few girls over a misunderstanding on the schoolyard The incident escalates on social media, local chat boards, and gossip sites Forced to change schools, Lexi gets her karmic revenge when she returns to her old school for a Winter Formal In a gesture of pure bravery, Lexi turns the tables on the clique by landing the boy at the dance and her picture in the yearbook Comics veterans Dave Elliott, Nam Kim and Garry Leach team up with publishers Anthony and Michelle Zuiker to bring us the follow up to Mend The same high production values are here, as we join teenager Lexi Philips true story of her experiences with cyberbullying her harassment and torment from those she believed were her friends and played out in the public eye over social media In her own words, she tells of her struggle and eventual rise over this cruelty and in doing so, offers what I think is real hope for anyone else caught in what can seem to be a hopeless situation As you can see from the photo, the artwork is pretty creative as it takes us into Lexi s emotional world Side note I ve particularly liked how the team have put Lexi front and center as the author of the book acknowledging her creative credit in a way that we sometimes hear doesn t always happen in film and comics And speaking of credit, it s obvious that co publisher Michelle Zuiker s years of experience in the classroom have shaped this series especially in it s support of teachers and accompanying online teaching materials.This is definitely a real strength of the series I look forward to the next two books advertised.
