M in the Abstract

My friend Douglas Davey recently launched his great new young adult book, "M in the Abstract" about a struggling teen who seems to have a particular ability.  Not only is he a writer and an avid consumer of story, Douglas is a parent, a teacher, a librarian, and so has a particular insight into the minds and culture of young people that I seem to have forgotten (my teen years being more than half my life ago), until reading this book.    Really touching, beautifully written.  This is my reinterpretive doodle inspired by the cover of the book.  It's a great read even if you're no longer a teenager.  I recommend it.
