in different classes and forming new cliques, and she is totally, completely lost. What [Dany] really needs is a new best friend. So when she inherits a magic sketchbook from her eccentric great-aunt in which anything she sketches in it comes to life, she draws Madison, the most amazing, perfect, and awesome best friend ever"--Amazon.com.

Praise for Making Friends
"This charming graphic novel features full-color, manga-inspired illustrations and a breezy plot that blends wish fulfillment and fantasy with an approachable and contemporary storyline. With a broad brush, Gudsnuk hits many of the angst-y issues of middle school, including popularity, bullying, family relationships, body image, and fandom, creating appeal for a large swath of readers. A nifty pastiche of middle school matters. "--Kirkus
