Summer's over and it's time for Sunny Lewin to enter the strange and unfriendly hallways of middle school. When her Gramps calls her from Florida to ask how she's doing, she always tells him she's fine. But Sunny is NOT having the best time. Sunny misses her brother Dale, who's been sent to boarding school. But when Dale comes back, she STILL misses him...because he's changed. Luckily Sunny's got her best friend and a mysterious new neighbor on her side because she is NOT going let all this confusion get her down. Instead, she's going to remain Sunny-side up!

For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff --- the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss --- and they expect everyone to be just like them. But Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in --- she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare?
by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm - Graphic Novel

From the groundbreaking and award-winning sister-brother team behind BABYMOUSE comes a middle-grade, semi-autobiographical graphic novel.

Following the lives of kids whose older brother's delinquent behavior has thrown their family into chaos, SUNNY SIDE UP is at once a compelling "problem" story and a love letter to the comic books that help the protagonist make sense of her world.

By sister-bother team Jennifer and Matthew Holm. A 200-page, full-color graphic novel in the vein of Raina Telgemeier's SMILE.
