Slip / Marika McCoola, Aatmaja Pandya.

McCoola, Marika, (author.). Pandya, Aatmaja, (illustrator.).


"A young pottery student finds her artistic voice and first love at an art camp, while also coping with feelings of guilt and worry about her best friend, who recently attempted suicide"-- Provided by publisher.
"Just as Jade is about to leave for a summer art program, her best friend, Phoebe, attempts suicide. How is Jade supposed to focus on her ceramics when Phoebe is in so much pain? At the Art Farm, Jade is thrust into a whirlwind of creation, critiques, and the fervor of her fellow artists. As she gets to know her classmates, she begins to fall for upbeat, whimsical Mary. The Art Farm is competitive. Jade's teachers are exacting. Overwhelmed, Jade pours herself -- and her emotions -- into making clay creatures. When she fires them in the kiln, something unreal happens: they come to life, running wild and wrecking havoc. If Jade won't confront her problems, her problems are going to confront her, including the scariest of them all: if Jade finds a way to grow, thrive, and even fall in love this summer, is she leaving Phoebe behind?" -- cover.
