Primer is a really enjoyable graphic novel. I was captured from the very beginning. It is about a thirteen year old artistic foster kid who becomes a super hero. She has a criminal father who makes her think that no one will love her like he does, but when she moves in with her latest foster family she knows that that isn't true. She finally starts to realize that she isn't the same as her father and that others can really love and treat her as she should be loved and treated. If you enjoy superheroes, art, and kicking bad guy butt, than this is definitely a book you need to read!

SUMMARY

Artistry and super-heroics collide as a colorful new superhero finds her place in the world.

Animation superstars Jennifer Muro and Thomas Krajewski introduce us to a brand-new superhero with a colorful array of superpowers! Thirteen-year-old Ashley Rayburn is an upbeat girl with a decidedly downbeat past. With a criminal father in prison, Ashley has bounced from foster home to foster home with trouble always finding her along the way. Finally settling in with loving and supportive foster parents, Ashley's world is turned upside down again when she stumbles upon a set of body paints that grant the wearer a multitude of superpowers. But the government agency that made those paints wants them back, and now she has to make hard choices to protect her new family while overcoming the shadows of the past.
