After a hate crime occurs in his small Texas town, Adrian Piper must discover his own power, decide how to use it and know where to draw the line in this stunning debut novel exquisitely illustrated by the author. He may be a talented artist, a sci-fi geek and gay, but at his Texas high school those traits would only bring him the worst kind of attention. In fact, the only place he feels free to express himself is at his drawing table, crafting a secret world through his own Renaissance-art-inspired superhero, Graphite. But in real life, when a shocking hate crime flips his world upside down, Adrian must decide what kind of person he wants to be.
