Synopsis: Lives intersect in the most unexpected ways when teenagers Anne and Lewis cross paths at an estate sale in sleepy Failin, Oregon. Failin was once a thriving logging community. Now the town's businesses are crumbling, its citizens bitter and disaffected. Anne and Lewis refuse to succumb to the fate of the older generation as they discover—together—the secrets of their hometown and their own families.

* From award-winning creators Sara Ryan Carla Speed McNeil (Finder)! "[Bad Houses] is the best graphic novel I've read all year. Superbly observed, exquisitely drawn, with a sharp bite and a real human pulse. Magnificent." — Warren Ellis, author of Gun Machine and Transmetropolitan

From Booklist: Failin, Oregon, is a town of left-behinds, a mecca for antique-shop junkies, and a wasteland of urban decay. Once someone manages to find a way out, they never look back. Twentysomethings Ann and Lewis aren’t so lucky; they’re each stuck with a mother unable to let go of the past. Lewis’ mother, who raised him alone under stringent house rules, has roped him into the family business of running estate sales. Ann’s mother, Danica, is a compulsive hoarder and routinely needs Ann to help take care of her until Danica starts dating a “feckless asshole” who is far angrier and more hurtful than he appears. But Ann and Lewis’ young love prevails, and they set out for a life on their own terms. McNeil’s black-and-white illustrations lovingly capture the rainy, kitsch-filled town of Failin and the expressive faces of the characters. Though the climax is a bit tidy—multiple momentous events seem to happen all at once—Ryan (Empress of the World, 2001) and McNeil’s engrossing story wonderfully illustrates Ann and Lewis’ triumphant step into the future. --Sarah Hunter
