Draw the Line, by Laurent Linn
There are days when Markus Bradbury would like nothing more than to stay in his room and draw. Knights in shining armour, space aliens invading, you name it, he's drawn it. But life isn't that easy. Markus can't spend all day drawing. His parents have started to crack down on his drawings. They want him to do better at school, do his chores, take care of the horses, and ultimately help keep the family ranch going. Resigned, Markus follows their wishes - until one day, someone takes notice of his drawings. Soon, Markus has to choose between his dreams of getting his drawings published and keeping his family afloat.
A powerful coming-of-age debut by Laurent Linn, exploring identity and finding your way in the world.
The Actual Synopsis
Adrian Piper is used to blending into the background at his Texas high school. He may be a talented artist, a sci-fi geek, and gay, but those traits 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. Maybe it’s time to not be so invisible after all—no matter how dangerous the risk.
In Draw the Line, Laurent Linn’s debut novel, he writes a charged story—illustrated with his own extraordinary drawings—about discovering your own superpowers, deciding how to use them, and where to draw the line.
ComparingSo... I might have been a little off the mark... BUT STILL - you can totally see where I came from right?? At least I DID get the drawing part right... xD
