Skim by Mariko Tamaki, illustrated by Jillian Tamaki [in Bloomsbury Review]

SkimMeet Kimberly Keiko Cameron, aka “Skim,” a wannabe witch navigating her angst-filled teenage life in a 1990s Toronto high school. In this book created by cousins Mariko and Jillian making their fabulous collaborative debut, Skim manages to survive the first half of 10th grade – not an easy feat, dealing with her parents’ separation, suicide, depression, questions of homosexuality, challenging friendships, and maybe falling in love.
