Stuck in the Middle

    (Viking, 2007)
™ and © Viking

Seventeen comic book creators share their visions of what is inarguably one of the most awkward, unpleasant experiences anyone has to go through: middle school. From explorations of low self-esteem, to tales of backstabbing and gossip, to stories of being the social outcast, this volume illustrates a definitive picture of middle school. Some of the more poignant stories feature angry children who will lash out at parents or turn on their friends in an effort to fit in elsewhere. Few people at that age are angels, and these stories show them struggling to understand themselves, their peers, and the changes they are going through as they slowly, painfully leave childhood behind. Edited by Ariel Schrag and published by Viking Press, this book collects work by Gabrielle Bell, Ariel Bordeaux, Robyn Chapman, Daniel Clowes, Vanessa Davis, Nick Eliopulos, Eric Enright, Jim Hoover, Cole Johnson, Joe Matt, Jace Smith, Aaron Renier, Tania Schrag, Dash Shaw, and Lauren Weinstein.
