Adrian and the Tree of Secrets

by Hubert, illustrated by Marie Caillou
£13.99   paperback  Arsenal Pulp Press (2014)

Adrian and the Tree of Secrets by Hubert, illustrated by Marie Caillou A bittersweet graphic novel about a nerdy teenaged boy who falls in love with the cool kid at school.
 
Adrian isn't very happy these days. He lives in a small town and goes to a Catholic high school. He wears glasses, secretly reads philosophy books, and wishes he had more muscles. He's dogged by a strict mother, bullied by fellow players on the soccer field, and chastised by the school principal, who considers rumors about Adrian being gay as a sign that he is "ill." But Jeremy, the coolest kid at school, thinks otherwise; he takes Adrian on scooter trips, where they end up in Jeremy's secret treehouse stealing kisses. Adrian finds himself falling in love, until Jeremy's girlfriend rats them out, sending Jeremy into a tailspin of embarrassment. What will become of Adrian?
 
Adrian and the Tree of Secrets is a poignant, beautifully illustrated graphic novel about first love, growing up, and having the courage to be true to yourself.
