17 ½ Ways of Topping Tim

Tim Birkmann is a good looking guy. Outrageously good looking, Jojo thinks, when he suddenly shows up at her new school. The two of them were the best of friends way back in kindergarten—but now he doesn’t even so much as recognise her. That really is the limit! Instead, he gives all his attention to Jojo’s arch-enemies, so he’ll just have to die...

Figuratively speaking of course, using the power of the pencil—because drawing is Jojo’s passion. She collects a series of sketches depicting Tim Birkmann’s death in a secret scrapbook—but ironically, on the day when Tim and Jojo finally get closer and find themselves hitting it off again, the scrapbook disappears. It mustn’t find its way into Tim’s hands under any circumstances…

A graphic novel for girls: turbulent, hilariously funny and utterly adorable.
