At 15, Emily is a relatively typical teenage girl living in the Maritimes who lives with her dad and spends all her free time outdoors. Enter her neighbor who offers to lend a helping hand to a girl in need. Three words: "Our Little Secret," and Emily's fate is sealed. Now in her fifties, Carrington has crafted a compulsively readable debut that shows a powerful command of the comics medium. Our Little Secret is a testament to survival and to the importance of telling your story your way.
