Did you know that Faith Erin Hicks is awesome? Because she is.
She's published books about zombies, aliens, and boarding school. She's serialized webcomics. She's even created a beautiful tribute to the Hunger Games book series, and other pieces about favorite books and movies.
And her new book, Friends With Boys, is out right now.
Reading Friends With Boys is the literary equivalent of having a cup of coffee with a good friend who's been going through some heavy stuff but who's going to be just fine, and then going home and hugging your cat because your cat is awesome.
Just like Faith Erin Hicks.
