Escape From "special"Paperback - 2006
Miss Lasko's graphic novel debut is the story of Melissa. Willfull, funny and perceptive, Melissa unsentimentally questions religion, identity formation and treacherous female friendships' as she bounces from school to school. Drawn in b/w and washed in moody greys and blues, Miss Lasko-Gross's art exquisitely expresses the story's blend of humour (sometimes of the gross-out variety) and keenly observed insights. Miss Lasko-Gross has created a graphic novel that will appeal to a wide and varied audience.'
