Summary, etc. note: Goglu is a daydreamer with a young working mother, a disengaged stepfather, and a father who lives five thousand miles away. Drawing, punk rock, and the promise of true independence guide Goglu to adulthood while her home's daily chaos inevitably shapes her identity. Susceptible is a devastating graphic novel debut by Geneviève Castrée; it's a testament to the heartbreaking loss of innocence when a child is forced to be the adult amongst grownups.. "...an aching clarity [is] evident in [Castrée's] sombre grey tones and her dexterous, serpentine lines."-Globe & Mail Best 100 Books of 2013 "With mesmerizing honesty Castrée resurrects the obscenely disorienting turning points of a childhood, the ones that haunt a person for a lifetime. After reading the last page I closed the book and wept a little bit about its simple, perfect ending." -MIRANDA JULY, author of It Chooses You and No One Belongs Here More Than You
