The Airless Year
For Kacee, a queer Black girl in middle school, everything feels like a struggle. Her parents take out their personal issues on her, classes are a challenge, her crush is clueless about her feelings, and her two best friends are always at odds.
When Kacee fails a class as a result of her stress and ends up in summer school, she starts to wonder why she even bothers tryingâ€”and ultimately begins to discover her own power to improve the things in her life she can control, and try to let go of what she canâ€™t.
From writer Adam P. Knave (The Once and Future Queen) and artist Valentine Barker, with letters by Frank Cvetkovic (Punch-Up),Â The Airless YearÂ is a story of self-discovery and empowerment about taking control where you can, and learning to let the rest go.
