Could this be the solution to her problems?
Praise for Nat Enough:
Named one of "the year's best [graphic novel] books" by The Washington Post
"Maria writes funny, Maria draws funny, and Maria does it with a ton of heart." -- Jim Davis, creator of Garfield
"What elevates Maria Scrivan's graphic novel is the refreshing honesty with which it approaches its subject matter. The tone is instructive but not preachy, as Natalie develops her talents as a cartoonist and discovers her individuality, which brings her not only the acceptance of others but, more importantly, self-acceptance." -- Financial Times
"With the humor and illustrative style of a daily newspaper comic, debuting creator Scrivan's story of middle school minefields is gentle and timeless." -- Publishers Weekly
"Scrivan's exuberant, comic strip-esque art and simple dialogue will entice a range of readers, who will relate to Nat's insecurities." -- School Library Journal
"[A] straightforward, heartfelt story." -- Kirkus Reviews
"This story of growing up is a perfect read for students new to middle school and those questioning where their talents lie." -- Booklist
Praise for Forget Me Nat:
"Scrivan's cartoony artwork is bubbly and colorful, making for another fun and thoughtful middle-grade graphic novel." -- Booklist
"One of the highlights of the Nat series has been the way Scrivan brings her well-honed skills as a syndicated daily newspaper cartoonist to the drawing table... An absolute joy to behold." -- The Beat
