In Maria Scrivan’s new graphic novel, Nat for Nothing, Natalie is struggling to find her footing when it comes to after-school activities. While Flo is off trying her hand at puppetry and Zoe is serving up stellar spikes for the volleyball club, Nat can’t quite figure out where she fits in … until she makes a new friend who may help her crush her extracurricular crisis.

Whether you’re a drama kid or a sports star, a bookworm or a bass player, you’ll love this peek inside Nat’s world and a chance to learn how to create your very own comic strip.

Suitable for ages 8+.
