Paul Has a Summer Job

Michel Rabagliati

(152p, 7x10" PB)

Roughing it in your teens

This sweet and funny coming-of-age story marks a high-water mark in great old-fashioned storytelling in graphic novels. This book tells the story of Paul, a Montreal teenager who, against the backdrop of Quebec in the 1970s, tastes the freedom and responsibilities of adulthood for the first time. Thanks to plummeting grades, Paul defiantly quits high school and takes a job at factory. A year later, tired and depressed, Paul accepts a strange job offer to go be a counselor at a summer camp in the mountains run by a freewheeling Catholic priest. Paul finds himself guiding a motley band of kids-- misfits, loners, and troublemakers -- through the rough terrain of growing up.
