Have you ever felt like you don’t fit in? Like everyone else
is doing a great job at life, and you’re just trying to make sure you don’t
look like a fish out of water? Well amplify that feeling by a thousand, and you’ll
understand what it’s like for Loma Shade. Bored with her life on the planet
Meta, Loma steals the “madness coat” that belonged to her hero and poet Rac
Shade and uses it to take over the body of a high school mean girl and
experience life on earth.
But they don’t call it the madness coat for nothing. Loma’s
struggling to get a grip on her new life, all of the feelings that come with the teenage experience, and reality itself.
Each frame bursts off the page in psychedelic whimsy while the story itself
stays grounded with award winning YA author Cecil Castellucci’s sardonic wit.
Shade the Changing Girl is wonderfully weird, and available
to check out today.
