Meet Suee: Twelve years old, wears her hair to the left in a point, favors a black dress, has no friends—and she likes it that way! When Suee transfers to the dull and ordinary Outskirts Elementary, she doesn’t expect to hear a strange voice speaking to her from the darkness of the school’s exhibit room, and she certainly doesn’t expect to see her shadow come to life. Then things start to get really weird: One by one, her classmates at school turn into zombie-like, hollow-eyed Zeroes. While Suee investigates why this is happening, her shadow gains power. Soon, Suee must confront a stunning secret that her shadow has been hiding under her own two feet—something very dark and sinister that could put Suee and her newfound friends at risk!

Suee is exactly the creepy adventure I hoped it would be. But, it also touched a nerve. As a kid, I wanted to be tough and not care what anyone else thought, even if I was "mean." I also wanted to believe I'd do the right thing if I witnessed injustice, despite the evidence from times I didn't. It was like Suee pressed all the bruises on my psyche that I thought had faded. This may seem like an uncomfortable feeling, but it was freeing to read her story. Ly acknowledges the borderlands children walk every day as they are challenged and decide what kind of people they want to be in the world. SUEE AND THE SHADOW is a cool story with unexpected depth--and the art is fantastic. I want to be Suee's friend! (And maybe the shadow's, too.)
