JUVENILE FICTION / Comics & Graphic Novels / General
Starting middle school is hard enough when you don’t know anyone; it’s even harder when you’re shy. A contemporary middle-grade graphic novel for fans of Guts and Real Friends about how dealing with anxiety and OCD can affect everyday life.

As long as Maggie rolls the right number, nothing can go wrong…right?
 
Maggie just wants to get through her first year of middle school. But between finding the best after-school clubs, trying to make friends, and avoiding the rumored monster on school grounds, she’s having a tough time…so she might need a little help from her twenty-sided dice. But what happens if Maggie rolls the wrong number?
 
A touching middle-grade graphic novel that explores the complexity of anxiety, OCD, and learning to trust yourself and the world around you.
 
“A charming, compassionate story that’s sure to resonate with anyone who’s ever stayed up worrying.” —Gale Galligan, adaptor and illustrator of the Baby-Sitters Club graphic novel series

Series Overview: This is book one of a duology.

HIT CATEGORY: Girl driven middle grade graphic novels are HUGE and the market is nowhere near saturated. Perfect next read for fans of Roller Girl, Awkward, Be Prepared, Smile and Click!

DIVERSITY WINS THE DAY: Just Roll With It’s co-author and illustrator, Veronica Agarwal, is biracial and has OCD. Maggie’s experiences in this book are inspired by her own. With parents, teachers, librarians, and kids looking for diverse voices in books, we know this story will resonate.

ROLL THE DICE: Role playing games have had a huge resurgence in pop culture and in Just Roll With It, Maggie and her family play a game called The Chosen which helps set up stroy telling tropes the kids will recognize from their favorite role playing games.

SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SUBJECT: Books about mental health (anxiety, Real Friends; mental health, Guts) have become more and more popular—and help kids as they deal with these subjects in their every-day lives. Just Roll With It’s take on OCD and anxiety makes this the perfect fit for kids struggling in their own lives.

S&L OPPORTUNITY: We hear from teachers and librarians that they can’t keep graphic novels on their shelves! This is a perfect graphic novel for middle school kids looking for a fun read, on top of this book’s potential in the trade market.

Lee Durfey-Lavoie, a college dropout who was able to find a career in writing, loves role-playing games and spending time with his cat. Just Roll with It is his debut graphic novel.
