"A compelling tale of a boy who has to accept his own value or sense of self-worth...one of those exciting indy tales of living life."--Leory Doureseaux, COMIC BOOK BIN
"Bennett captures the uncanny feeling of high school in this graphic novel...The understated grace of Jake's narrative will resonate with teens, who will connect with Jake and his froggy inner voice."--BOOKLIST
Jake's too old for an imaginary friend, but that doesn't seem to bother the six-foot frog he talks to--Longfellow High just seems more real now that Wilbur's around. In the big leap from childhood to adulthood, the lessons learned in school aren't always in the classroom. Leap Years is the graphic novel debut of Ian Bennett and is the tenth book from Candle Light Press. Leap Years follows Jake's entire high school experience--the lessons, the losses, the loves that will stay with him his whole life.
