What's Squint About

Publisher Summary

The hero of my comic books can shoot lasers from his eyes when he squints. But it might not be enough to save the Empress. What he’ll need most of all is a friend named Diamond Girl. Flint loves to draw. In fact, he’s furiously trying to finish his comic book so he can be the youngest winner of the “Find a Comic Star” contest. He’s also rushing to finish because he has an eye disease that could eventually make him blind. At school, Flint meets McKell. She’s new girl and doesn’t seem to have trouble making friends. She does have a problem with how some of her new friends treat this boy they call “Squint.” He seems nice and really talented. He also seems like the kind of person who wouldn’t laugh at you. That’s important, because McKell has hidden talents of her own but is worried about what will happen if she shares them. Squint is the inspiring story of two new friends dealing with their own challenges, who learn to trust each other, believe in themselves, and begin to truly see what matters most.
