Dany's sketchbook is at it again, but this time it's not Dany's doing!

Dany and Madison are living a new reality. Rather than best friends, the pair now believe they are twins — and that isn't the only part of their lives that has been completely rewritten. Their mom is a novelist, their dad is a rock star, and Dany has suddenly become a diligent student.

Things. Aren't. Adding. Up.

Dany and Madison start sleuthing and discover that someone has drastically altered the universe! Can the pair put things back the way they were, or is this magic beyond their control?

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Making Friends:

* "Making Friends is the Scott Pilgrim for the tweenage set, perfect for any younger readers' graphic novel collection." — School Library Journal, starred review

"Gudsnuk's powers of imagination will make her plenty of friends." — Publishers Weekly

"This charming graphic novel features full-color, manga-inspired illustrations and a breezy plot that blends wish fulfillment and fantasy with an approachable and contemporary storyline. With a broad brush, Gudsnuk hits many of the angst-y issues of middle school, including popularity, bullying, family relationships, body image, and fandom, creating appeal for a large swath of readers... A nifty pastiche of middle school matters." — Kirkus Reviews

"Middle-schoolers, meanwhile, will appreciate Gudsnuk's light touch in bringing an empathetic, joyful, and judicious treatment to those tough in-between years." — Booklist

Praise for Making Friends: Back to the Drawing Board:

"Gudsnuk's bubbly, playful artwork, in a warm palette dominated by pink and purple and dense with detail and expressive, goggle-eyed faces, is a pleasure to look at." — Booklist
