Robbins Library QBG Reads… Skim

August 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This month QBG will be discussing the graphic novel Skim by Mariko Tamaki, Illus. Jillian Tamaki.

“’Skim’ is Kimberly Keiko Cameron, a not-slim, would-be Wiccan goth who goes to a private girls’ school. When Skim’s classmate Katie Matthews is dumped by her boyfriend, who then kills himself, the entire school goes into mourning overdrive. As concerned guidance counselors provide lectures on the ‘cycle of grief,’ and the popular clique starts a new club (Girls Celebrate Life!) to bolster school spirit, Skim sinks into an ever-deepening depression.

And falling in love (with her teacher Ms. Archer, no less) only makes things worse…”
