The wild mixture of textures and warmly abstracted objects and characters seem completely natural to my daughter, like they're from her own mind.

When the opening chapter relates the hanging of 31 year old Elizabeth Cree, you can't help but want to know the events that led up to it. Resistance is the first voulme of a triology written by acclaimed teen author Carla Jablonski and illustrated by Leland Purvis. Does not do justice to the author.
