i.d.: Stuff That Happens to Define Us

Share |

A 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Award finalist, i.d.: Stuff That Happens to Define Us (Annick Press) is by Kate Scowen with illustrations by Peter Mitchell. For readers ages 13+, I.D. collects 12 first-person accounts about life's pivotal moments and offers each as an incisive graphic narrative. Each anecdote and accompanying reflection reveals how individual identity can be shaped by common themes of growing up. By turns thoughtful, painful, funny and fierce, I.D. powerfully demonstrates that what happens to define us in youth doesn't have to confine us forever.
