Instagram sensation and Tapas webcomic superstar Cassandra

Calin makes her long-form debut with this funny, feel-good

middle-grade graphic novel about change.

Goodbye, old life...

Lia and her family are waiting to board a flight across the Atlantic,

leaving behind family, friends, and Romania -- the only home

Lia has ever known. But Lia's heartache is overshadowed by the

discomfort of her first period. As if things weren't difficult

enough! Now Lia is thrust into a world where everything is different:

her home, her language, and even her body. With so many changes

happening at once, Lia struggles with schoolwork, has trouble

communicating with classmates, and has no idea how to manage her

unpleasant periods. Will she ever feel like herself again?

Inspired by the author's own immigration experience, The New

Girl is a comically charming story about change and acceptance.
