“Brenna Thummler’s first original graphic novel is a reason to celebrate. She announced herself as an artist to reckon with when she illustrated Mariah Marsden’s adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. Now she’s illustrated her own story of ghosts and family, loneliness and laundromats. I’m sure you’ll be captivated, and as eager as I am to see what comes next!”-Brian Selznick, author of Wonderstruck and The Invention of Hugo Cabret
For Marjorie Glatt, being thirteen years old isn’t quite the same as it is for everyone else. Responsible for running her family’s laundromat while trying to survive middle school, Marjorie’s daily struggles include persnickety customers, snippy classmates, agonizing swim lessons, and laundry… always, always laundry.
Wendell is a bit different, too. Wendell is a ghost. His daily struggles include Dead Youth support groups and unavoidable stains. But when he escapes from the Land of Ghosts and bumbles into Marjorie’s laundromat–the perfect ghost playground–his attempts at fun and friendship begin to harm the family business.
Sheets is a powerful story about a young girl’s perseverance, even when all the odds are stacked against her. It shows that forgiveness and second chances can result in unlikely friendships. Above all, it is an invitation into an unusual, haunted laundromat that brings family, friends, and–yes–sheets to life.
