When Julia finds a slur about her best friend scrawled
across the back of the Kingston School for the Deaf, she
covers it up with a beautiful (albeit illegal) graffiti
Her supposed best friend snitches, the principal expels
her, and her two mothers set Julia up with a one-way
ticket to a “mainstream” school in the suburbs, where
she’s treated like an outcast as the only deaf student.
The last thing she has left is her art, and not even
Banksy himself could convince her to give that up.
Out in the ’burbs, Julia paints anywhere she can, eager
to claim some turf of her own. But Julia soon learns that
she might not be the only vandal in town. Someone is
adding to her tags, making them better, showing off—and
showing Julia up in the process. She expected her art
might get painted over by cops. But she never imagined
getting dragged into a full-blown graffiti war.
Told with wit and grit by debut author Whitney Gardner,
who also provides gorgeous interior illustrations of
Julia’s graffiti tags, You’re Welcome, Universe
introduces audiences to a one-of-a-kind protagonist who
is unabashedly herself no matter what life throws in her
