This graphic novel tells the story of Barbara Thorson, an acerbic 5th-grader so consumed with fantasy that she doesn't just tell people that she kills giants with an ancient Norse Warhammer—she starts to believe it herself.

Ostracized or incarcerated her whole life, 17-year-old Juliette is freed on the condition that she use her horrific abilities in support of The Reestablishment, a post-apocalyptic dictatorship. Adam, the only person to ever show her affection, offers hope of a better future for the two of them.
After witnessing her friend's death at the hands of a police officer, Starr Carter's life is complicated when the police and a local drug lord try to intimidate her in an effort to learn what happened the night Khalil died.
Self-proclaimed fat girl, Willowdean Dickson (dubbed "Dumplin'" by her former-beauty-queen mom), has always been at home in her own skin, but when her cute coworker asks her out it shakes her confidence. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any Twiggy girl does. Along the way, she'll shock the heck out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.
