For as long as she can remember, it{u2019}s been Robin and her mom against the world. Growing up as the only child of a single mother in Seoul, Korea, wasn{u2019}t always easy, but it has bonded them fiercely together. So when a vacation to visit friends in Huntsville, Alabama, unexpectedly becomes a permanent relocation--following her mother{u2019}s announcement that she{u2019}s getting married--Robin is devastated. Overnight, her life changes. She is dropped into a new school where she doesn{u2019}t understand the language and struggles to keep up.

At home, she doesn{u2019}t fit in with her new stepfamily, and worst of all, she is furious with the one person she is closest to--her mother. Then one day Robin{u2019}s mother enrolls her in a local comic drawing class, which opens the window to a future Robin could never have imagined.
