Sixteen-year-old Raphaelle says the wrong thing, antagonizes the wrong people and has the wrong attitude. She can't do anything right except draw, but she draws the wrong pictures. When her father moves the family to a small prairie city, Raphaelle wants to make a new start. Reborn as "Ella," she tries to fit in at her new school. She's drawn to Samir, a Muslim boy in her art class, and expresses her confused feelings in explicit art. When a classmate texts a photo of Ella's art to a younger friend, the fallout spreads throughout Ella's life, threatening to destroy her already-fragile family. Told entirely in verse, Audacious is a brave, funny and hard-hitting portrait of a girl who embodies the word audacity .

From Library Staff

Gabrielle Prendergast, VPL's 2014 Writer in Residence, offers the story of a rebellious 16-year-old girl named Raphaelle. Tiring of her image, she reinvents herself as Ella following her family's move to a new town. Ella's story continues in Prendergast's Capricious.
