Lilico, with the help of her cat, must learn to adjust to a new country, a new school, and new pressures in this middle grade graphic novel from author/illustrator Misako Rocks! about finding your team and finding yourself.

Friendship, a new school, and a bit of magic converge in this full-color graphic novel.

Lilico’s life in Japan is going well. She has great friends and is the captain of the school's basketball team. She’s happy!

Then comes her parents’ news: they’re moving to America! Before she knows it, Lilico finds herself in Brooklyn, New York, forced to start all over. And that won’t be easy with her closest friends thousands of miles away or a school bully who immediately dislikes her.

Luckily, anime-loving Nala and Henry eventually befriend Lilico and with help from them—along with her guardian spirit who looks a lot like her cat, Nico—Lilico just might figure out where she fits in.

From author/illustrator Misako Rocks! comes a story about friendship, new beginnings, and doing what you love, no matter what.

About the Author

Misako Rocks! is a Brooklyn-based manga artist. Her first break came when The Onion decided to use her illustrations for their “Savage Love” column. Shortly afterward, in 2007, Misako self-published her autobiographical comic, Rock and Roll Love, which was featured in Best Books for Teens List by NYPL. Outside of the U.S., she has published four books in Japan. Her latest book, How to Learn English with Misako’s Method, became a bestseller on Japanese Amazon.
