Description
Information
A wildly imaginative comic fantasy that combines classic storylines with contemporary twists to create a weird but wonderful adventure.

In a vast and sparkling city where nearly everyone can fly, 12-year-old Gurl is trapped. Orphaned and lonely, she believes she is nothing more than a fightless 'leadfoot', until one fateful night when she discovers she has the power to make herself invisible.

But even with this newfound talent, Gurl can't hide from a giant rat man with a taste for cats, a manipulative matron with a penchant for plastic surgery, and a belligerent boy named Bug.

Gradually, Gurl learns to control her power and teams up with Bug to figure out who and what she is. Their quest takes them on a wild ride where they confront mind-bending monkeys, an eccentric genius with a head full of grass and a pocket full of kittens and the handsome but lethal Sweetcheeks Grabowski -- the gangster who holds the key to Gurl's past... and the world's future.
